Day At The Beach

After a day of household chores yesterday (see how I spared you a blog post of that?), we decide to take advantage of the glorious weather and pop down to the beach for the day.

We opt for Grand Motte, since it is one of the most dog-friendly resorts around here. Many resorts simply will not allow dogs on the beach at any time of the year, whilst others restrict access to certain months. Although you can safely ignore these prohibitions in the winter months when the beaches are largely deserted, once the good weather comes along and you have kids building sand castles, a 40KG moron who ploughs through the middle of said kids and/or castles whilst peeing on your picnic usually brings out the Villagers-With-Pitchforks mentality of the local population.

Grand Motte is nice because, along with Les Saintes Maries de la Mer, it maintains specific beaches or stretches of beaches where dogs are allowed. Anyone stupid enough to build sand castles or attempt picnics on these stretches of beach deserves everything coming to them, in my opinion...

Harry is not as big a fan of the sea as Benson was, but he does like to cool his goolies after a long walk in the sun, and there is not much you can do to stop him once he gets the scent of the sea in his nostrils.

Other than wave a donut at him, of course....
