Low tide at Spanish Banks is really one of a kind. Spanish Banks is regularly a great dog beach but if you can get there on a low tide (arrive at least an hour ahead of the tide time) then it’s really special. With a fantastic view of the cityscape, it feels like you can almost walk out to the tankers and the beach is 1000x bigger than normal.
|The tide is an hour away from low|
|It goes on forever!|
|Expert digger…not sure what for|
|Seriously, is this the only Vizsla that just sits in the middle of playing?|
|Playing a tiny bit of fetch|
We arrived at 9:30 on a Sunday morning and there were so many dogs and owners there that we met 3 other Vizslas!
|I had to lay on the sand to get this low|
|Meeting and playing with Hugo|
|There’s nothing like two Vizslas playing|
This time Whiskey was accompanied by her good friend Ginger who looks like a mini Vizsla with a no-nonsense attitude. Ginger was sporting her new life jacket (complete with handles) just in case the tide pools came too high. The two had a blast running around and meeting other dogs.
|Little Ginger is so short!|
|Ankle deep water is pretty high for her|
|Whiskey chases the seagulls|
|Ginger swimming along|
|This is what the handles are for!|
Whiskey had fun sniffing out crabs. At one point we even had to leash up Ginger when a bald eagle decided to hang out on the sand. In the end we had two very happy and tired puppies on the way home.
|until next time!|
