Dog Beach

There's a stretch of beach in Hungtington Beach where they allow dogs off leash, and it is absolutely amazing. The beach is at least a mile long, and it's beautiful, and if you visit on a weekend day, it's packed with happy dogs and people. Few things can lift the spirits like a happy dog - and hundreds of happy dogs, well that's about as good as it gets.

A couple of weekends ago, we met up with some friends down in Orange County. It was a gorgeous, hot day, so on the way back we stopped by the dog beach.

We'd brought Flynn here when we first moved to LA, and at that time, he seemed to be quite frightened of the ocean. Now he's a CA dog through and through, and was fearless in the waves.

Flynn says, "Just give me a couple more visits and I'll be tackling these waves on a board!"

BTW, I am going to try to tackle some waves on a board -- next Wednesday, in a surfing lesson (!?!).

My dogs would love Dog Beach! Labs definitely love the water. My older dog would swim all day/all night if we let him. Dogs are the best. You can always count on them to put a smile on your face :)

Love, Amanda B.

So nice to be able to take Flynn to that beach once in awhile. Bet he truly looks forward to it now. It also looked like you were having fun and cooling off. Was the water pretty cold? I'm so happy to see all your pictures.
