So, we skipped town last weekend for a quick 2-night trip to El Capitan State Beach. Right next to our tent, there was a little flat spot with room for our chairs and a dog bed and a direct view of this:
We spent quite a bit of time in that spot. The pups thought it was a great place to nap. And beg for treats. Twix does a mean high five with the right motivation.
We also spent some time at Arroyo Burro dog beach, which is only a 20 minute drive from the campground. Dogs aren’t allowed on state beaches, so we took them to the dog beach at low tide on Saturday.
The added bonus of low tide at the dog beach? Tidepools!
Naturally, we made it back to camp in time for sunset. I wouldn’t want to miss this.
We were up early Sunday morning, and made our way quietly to the beach with the dogs to catch the sunrise. It was quick enough not to get caught by anyone who would yell at us about dogs on the beach, but long enough for the dogs to find a dead lobster to roll on. Good times. Beautiful sunrise.
Not a bad way to spend a weekend. I hope we can do it again soon!
