The beach is just the right length for older dogs with a beautiful surf, clean and friendly. No pit bulls this time…yea!

Christmas day, no wind, very unusal for this area. White sand, cold water, friendly people and happy dogs.

Watched a family set up and decorate a Christmas tree. People had fun taking holiday pictures.

Gray whales, breaching, heading south. Dolphins, and sea birds.

Best part, free parking, free access to a beautiful beach and south of the river dogs run free.

This is a nice beach to walk. One can walk all the way to Spanish Bay area of Pebble Beach. There is a leash-free zone for dogs on southern part of beach, and many pet owners allow their dogs to frolic there and in the surf.

This beach is fantastic fog or sunshine. You can take your dog, walk, climb rocks and surf! It's fun for the whole family, a romantic stroll for a couple or action packed for hikers, beach combers, walkers or surfers!
