It's a bright and sunny day in Carolina Beach. Dad had met with the detective that was assigned to the murder case. Today the investigation would begin in full force. Molly had an idea. She was striking out on her own. This was something new for Molly because she usually had Dad tagging along and she was usually dragging Milly beside her but, today she was going solo. She'd know soon enough if it was a good idea.

Beginning the day

Everybody was up early. The kids wanted to go to the beach and mom wanted to work on her tan. Milly had no intention of leaving the house. It was nice to be alone sometimes and she was very content in her controlled environment. She would remain behind and read one of her books. Milly was right in the middle of a good mystery. The main character was a cat that solved murder cases. She was quite the celebrity. Milly was up to page 60 and she was really getting into the story. She really preferred reading fiction. Dad's murder investigation was going to ruin his summer holiday. Milly had made up her mind that she was not going to be pulled into this case. She was going to keep a very low profile.

Molly's foolproof plan

Molly had listened to Dad tell Mom about the investigation. She knew that the victim rented a house close to the boardwalk with several of his friends. They were here for the 4th of July holiday. Molly had just walked to the boardwalk with Mom a couple days ago. It was a nice walk and Molly was going there today. She was going alone. She wasn't inviting Dad because this was a solo trip. She needed to do a little investigating on her own. The house was one of the bigger ones on the beach. It would be easy to find. Molly wanted to get inside and look around. It shouldn't be too hard for a little border collie to gain entrance without being noticed. At least that's what she thought.

Going undercover in the middle of the day

It was mid-morning by the time Molly got out of the house. There was a volleyball came in full swing and people were out in the water swimming. The heat from the sun was making the sand hot. Molly really needed to get some sandals if she was going to continue walking on the beach. She had quite a way to go to get to the boardwalk. Her plan was to start at the boardwalk and walk in the direction of the rental in question. Once she found the house she'd find a way to get inside without being noticed. If things went as planned she'd be back home before lunch. There was no reason in Molly's mind that this would not work. Once she got in the house she'd start looking around for clues.

The boardwalk

By the time Molly reached the boardwalk she was tired. The sun was hot on her furry back and it made her feel uncomfortable. For one minute she thought maybe Milly was right and she should have stayed in the air conditioned house with her. It was too late now, she'd come this far and the victim's beach rental was close by. All she had to do was start walking along the beach till she found the biggest rental in the area. That was her destination. When she passed the hotdog stand she could smell the food cooking. She really wished she had one of those big juicy hotdogs right about now. She didn't know how she could think about food at a time like this. She was on a mission.
