i am declaring right here and now that the new happiest place in the world is no longer disneyland but the dog beach in long beach california!!
we started the overcast day having brunch at the cutest little pie-shaped diner next to rosie's dog beach. then with arms brimming with beach gear, we walked to the orange coned area of the beach exclusively for canines. we didn't have much time to settle in as my boyfriends dog marley took off to play and to make some new friends at the waters edge. this was marleys first trip to the beach, so he was a bit tentative at first, but then quickly discovered how fun the water really was once my daughter showed him!
my dog josie stayed home as the beach is really not her thing, plus she is still recovering from surgery she had in may for a tumor.
