We managed, after being on the road for 7 hours, to get to the beach before sunset. Lots of sand…. I am most happy to not live in an area where it is sandy! Impossible to let dogs run on the beach because of the seagulls that were flying everywhere. Quite obviously, I have beed away from California for too long…A Barbet is not made for sandy beaches with seagulls. Argh! I would have liked for them to run in the waves, but that was not possible! Nice evening, it was, anyway! Beautiful scenery! French waterdog but not beach dog!
