Were going back to weekday beach meetups as the dog beach has been flat out packed on the weekends :-0 Let's meet on Thursday afternoon, the beach is a lot less crowded during the week and most of the dogs there are regulars. We will meet at the south end of Huntington Dog Beach and then possibly move north a little bit.
There are two parking lots between Seapoint and Goldenwest that service Huntington Dog Beach. These parking lots now feature electronic parking meters that print out parking passes for your dashboard. The cost is $1.50 per hour. These machines take Visa/MC, currency, and coins. Additionally, there is metered parking along PCH at the Goldenwest end of Dog Beach. I always park in the residential neighborhood at PCH/Goldenwest and just walk across the street to the beach. If you drive about a block into the neighborhood there is free non metered parking (the first block is metered parking).
I recommend bringing a towel for your Boston if they are anything like Lola & Violet they will be covered in sand when you leave. I have seen some people bring a jug of water to rinse their dog off too. I always bring a bottle of water and a portable bowl in case my girls gets thirsty.
Hope to see you all there!
Lita, Lola and Violet too!
