It was a drizzly autumn day last weekend, and as dachshunds are fair weather doglets only, we decided to chance it and hope for the best with a trip to the beach.
Good decision, as it cleared a bit while we were at the beach, and the doglets could have a good run around and a bit of a sniff.
Beach of choice was South Shore, near New Brighton, through the Spit Reserve. You can only go onto one part of the beach with dogs at the moment due to the Godwits. I don’t think this is particularly well signposted unless you have entered through the main carpark at Spit Reserve. I suspect if you came through one of the other minor access points through the dunes, you may not even have a sign to notify you about it.
As the weather was a bit grim, we pretty much at had the beach to ourselves. We only encountered another couple with a dog and puppy, a family boogie-boarding (at least they had wetsuits on) and another couple walking – during the entire hour we were on the beach.
So onto the photos…
