At Lake Michigan where they have big waves, it was summer and school had gotten out. A lady and her dog were running at the beach. Alice hoped Lassie wouldn't tear her towel from her and take it into the water. She also hoped for sunshine. Nearby, the sounds of people selling t-shirts rivaled the sounds of the wind and waves. Alice was thinking she'd like to buy a long sleeve shirt before finding her car, which was parked a long way away. But first Alice and Lassie found a shady spot to have their lunch.
