Today I took Cinnamon into Long Beach to Rosie's Dog Beach. I'd assumed it was a smallish stretch of beach, with some sort of barriers at either end. Nah... it was just a big stretch of beach, which made it all the more fun.
There were dogs of every sort, but Cinnamon wasn't about to follow any of them anywhere the water was still touching... this was as close as she got to wet.
And having had the waves come that close, this was her response:
As unhappy as she was with all that water around, she was thrilled to have so many doggie friends to play with, and human friends to pet and adore her. We were only there about an hour before she'd had enough, and next time I go I'll have to bring a blanket and shade as well as water.
I had a good time, picked up a few shells (there are plenty, but nothing really spectacular) and picked up some sea-glass, which I'd eventually like to incorporate into a multi-media piece.
Parking at the beach is metered, and costs a dollar an hour, which I thought was a total bargain, all things considered.
