Have to agree with Soundy, Carmy did look like she was saying AAHHHHHH.
Soundy great pics at White Rock, where on the beach did you go? Last time I was down there I got in hell for having my dogs out of the car pretty much, they don't even let you walk on the sidewalks with them let alone get near the beach! (This wasn't even in the summer, but off season.) You must have been well off the beaten path. Haven't gone back down there in years now for that reason alone sadly. Well that and now that we've left Richmond it's a lot farther out.

We go to what's generally known as "East Beach", on the SFN lands, so the city bylaw weenies have no control. There's a gravel parking lot behind the WAG, it's $6 for all day parking (vs. $3/hr. on the street) and when it's busy they actually have attendants making sure people park properly (bring cash though!). At low tide, you've got probably a quarter-mile of sand and tidal pools before you hit the ocean, and the little guys really seem to prefer running on the soft sand.

Map here: http://goo.gl/maps/HdLn

As for "far"... hey, we're coming from Pitt Meadows - it's an easy half-hour drive via the Golden Ears Bridge, straight down 176th to 8th, and a quick jaunt over - the WAG is the first thing when you come out of the wooded areas, before you have to make your way along the beachfront crawl.

Okay you win for far! Plus you pay a toll to go over the bridge! You are a good doggy mom to do that just to let them play in the ocean.

I would imagine it's busy out there though with lots of dogs? Halo isn't so great with strange dogs unfortunately, but that's okay, she also isn't fond of the water so it's not likely we'll run into you there. That said, I think I'd recognize your dogs

Lettin the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin it back in.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain't gonna happen anyway.

I have to change my avatar pic to one of me instead of Groucho, so people stop thinking I'm mom... *sigh*

We normally go to Clayton Park, usually 2-3 times a week, so we're crossing the bridge for the park either way. It's worth it to avoid the hideous traffic going around the long way.

Fairly busy, but at low tide, it's a BIG - BIG area, so it's not hard to keep to yourself

Soundy, I'm sorry, it's such an automatic assumption! I don't know that I've ever seen anything that said your name or specifically noticed anyone referring to you as a male. I pledge to pay more attention!

I don't know, Patti--I've never used irfanview. But the pics looks AWESOME that way!!! She can run on water!

Twiggy looks mahhhhvelous, Marko. Can you actually buy bikinis for cats these days?

PapaD, that shot is a hoot!!

Great photos

I love this series. We've had quite a bit of heat recently so we get down to the river (N. Sask) as often as we can to cool off with all the other dogs. Smokey loves to swim and will chase a ball or stick until he gets it. Tigger and Puck stand along the edge and get muddy. Pepper likes to just relax in the grass.
