Went to the beach with Lotte.
As it was such a lovely day here, bright sunshine and warmth that we have had so rarely in our summer so far, I decided to meet with a friend and take our dogs for a walk.
Close to where I live is this amazing surf beach and part of it is designated for dogs. It is not blocked off in any way and the dogs, people, children (oh they are people too aren’t they) surfers, swimmers etc all mix and mingle.
There was a great mixture of dogs today, from Major (the Afghan) down to a tiny Chihuahua and every size in between – there were German Shepherds playing with Basset Hounds, Poodles and Bichons in amongst the Ridgebacks and Labradors and a once white West Highland Terrier that was rolling in the sand with a Griffon. They all had such a great time and I am sorry that I left my phone in the car while I was on the beach.
All the dogs enjoy the freedom afforded to them here. Fortunately Lotte doesn’t like going into the water but her best friend does. Can you imagine the state that an Afghan Hound gets into? Running into the sea and then rolling in the sand. Luckily I always have a towel for Lotte in the car and so it came in very useful for Major today.
Then round to a very casual cafe on the beach. It is housed in part of what used to be an Air Force base. I think they have taken over part of the submarine mining depot barracks. In any event it is well worth the drive and particularly on such a great day.
They have an unusual range of chairs. Each has a different saying on it. One I saw today said:
Sorry no photos from me today. Didn’t know this was what today’s blog was going to be about.
Our dogs will love and admire the meanest of us, and feed our colossal vanity with their uncritical homage.
