Outdoor Wednesday...Ocean Beach Dog Park Style...

Both my sons were off today, so I headed down to San Diego for a visit. The sun was shining early, so they suggested we go to the beach, but not just any beach...the dog beach. You see, Lola just loves the water and a day at the beach was just the ticket. The pier in the distance is the Ocean Beach Pier.
This is a picture of the water at dog beach. The waves were pretty small which was good for some of the smaller dogs there.


Lola just loved running around across the sand

Until she got very, very tired...




And we thought maybe we'd just leave and take a walk around town.




We walked by this coffee shop on our way and I thought it was pretty funny. The clerk wasn't dressed up like a pirate though which disappointed my sons. We had a nice visit, some exercise and sun...so a nice day all together.
Thanks guys!!

I’m visiting because of the Outdoor Wednesday Blog Hop. It’s easy to get lost in the midst of all those links and it may take me all week to read all the posts but your post has proven why it is worth the effort. What a wonderful walk on the beach I've had and I never had to get sand in my shoes! Thank you!

I invite you to stop by my blog if you get a chance.

I'm so glad Lola got a day at the beach :-) The Pirates Cove Coffee looks like fun... but I agree with your boys, you'd think the clerk would a least wear an eye patch!

Looks like a nice pier to go fishing.

The kids will love the pirate cove. Last year, my school kids, all 660 did a production on pirates.
