While our trio of beach towns have miles of beautiful sandy landscapes, beach volleyball courts, waves for surfing, and the Strand for running, none of the beaches here are dog friendly. Breck loves to swim, and play on the beach so it's a total bummer that he's not allowed to do those things here in our town.
We did however, discover that down in Huntington Beach there is a dog beach! Not just any dog beach, but a 5 mile long dog beach, barricaded by cliffs so that no doggie friends have the option of running away. So yesturday, we burst out of our bubble and headed the 26 miles down the 405 (no traffic!) to Huntington Beach Dog Beach.
Here are some pictures of Breck absolutely LOVING his California beach experience, and first swim in the Pacific Ocean! We let him off the leash and he just took off down the beach, greeting other dogs as he went along, jumping into the waves, stealing other dog's toys...you know, the usual.
