I'm looking everywhere I go

The next day --- Saturday --- we got up and headed up to Northport, which is a bit north of Suttons Bay and a bit of a bigger town, though still a charmingly cozy little spot. This turned out to be the day of the Northport dog parade, although that was held early in the morning when we were still rousing and all we actually saw was the aftermath, in the form of lots of people bringing their dogs around with them, which delighted us. What the dogs made of it I don't know, particularly as there were dogs of all weight classes, from Marmaduke down to Wadded-Up Tissue sized, and meeting a lot of them.
