While Jamie, Memphis and I hang out at the dock all day, Merlin prefers to nap and keep watch from the front porch up above the lake. I think it’s his herding instinct, but he can protect the cabin entrance this way, as well as watch all of us corralled down by the water. And there’s a fantastic breeze up here (as you can see from his fur). He does come down to the water occasionally, but right here is where he’s happiest.
For some photos of the full week, you can go over here.
