The Sears Island Rescue

The weather up here has been cold, blistery and rainy for the past couple of days so when I saw the sun come out and the skies clear this afternoon I decided to take my dog for a walk on Sears Island. The island is only a five minute drive from my house and the road form begining to end is not very long and very easy to walk so i though it would be good for both of us. It didnt take us very long to get to the other side of the island and when we reached the ocean we sat for while to rest on the white rocks on that sit just above the shoreline. After about 30 minutes I decided to head back to the car, I didnt have any gear with me and the sun was going to be setting shortly. We walked about 200 ft when my dog just layed down, at first it wasnt a problem and after about 10 minutes he got back up again (after some coaxing), we then started walking and made it about another 200 ft before he layed down again.
Well it turned out to be an intersting adventure but Im glad Im home because I really hate the cold and Sears Island at night is just creepy.
