As we mentioned Sunday, we are staying this week at Huntington Beach State Park. We are often asked why we prefer state parks to the commercial RV parks that offer so many more amenities (like, say, wireless internet rather than struggling to get a Verizon Wireless Laptop Card to connect to the internet). Let us explain:
Developed Residential Beach (Commercial Beach has all of the high rises)
State Park Beach (Both pictures taken from same place – border of state park)

Weekly thoughts from our Hu-Dad with the latest updates on his writing projects, the books he's reading, and a gratuitous dog photo of us.
A Walk on the Trashy Side
June 4, 2023
Maybe my neighbors didn’t notice, but I took a walk on the trashy side last week and need to confess my mistake.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Chasing Sun – The Struggle Is Real
We try every day to let you know how tough the life of a working breed dog is, so today we share the struggle of chasing sun.
That certainly looks beautiful!! But, I think I would still prefer my snow to the beach! Glad you are all having a great time!!

I love the portrait of the red team at sunrise! Which brings me to another questions. Do your humans match their clothes to which ever team they have? Also, is the same human always with the same team? We usually have girls against boys at our house. Mom and Kat and then Dad and me.
Oh, what beautiful photos – Mom wishes she were at the beach now instead of having to deal with cold and snow and lousy roads. Not us, we love our snow-filled yard. Great to see that Rusty has fun no matter what the weather or situation.

Oh, wow! That ocean is SO cool. Even better than the Kansas Ocean, I dare say!
Wow those are some very pretty photos! I’ll hound my humans to take me to the beach soon. It sure beats going to the vet.
Beautiful beach shots! Looks like a cool place to run free!
Thanks for sharing the sunset! Pawesome!
Yeah, I’d be staying at that beach too. Much nicer!
Oh, that looks so beautiful. I could take my humans on a nice long tow – and I bet there are all sorts of delicious scents on a beach. I’ve never been to an ocean. 🙁 My humans need to get a Hound RV!
Wow, I have to say, I’m jealous. It’s just cold and crappy here and you’re at the beach! The beach is AWESOME! Watch out for crabs though, they will pinch your nose, not like I know about that or anything….whistle whistle….
I love beautiful wide open spaces where Dad and I are alone and there are no other people! We can walk at our own pace and stop without distractions to smell the scents. Sometimes if we are really quiet, we see amazing parts of nature…like an owl perching or a fawn following its momma. Enjoy the solitude of your lovely beach.
Don’t blame you a BIT!!! Much better than commercialism! And the scenery is spectacular! Have fun!
what a wonderful beach. I am a bit jealous.
In France, no dogs allowed on the beach.
Beautiful!!! I would prefer to go there too! 🙂
That looks so relaxing and peaceful! I can see why you like it!
We prefer state parks too…one of our faves on the SC coast is Hunting Island!! Have fun!
As she’s shared with woo befur, Mom doubts she’d rekhognise MB! She visited there many times last century – with her last visit being the early 80’s –
She’s pretty SHORE the Akhadian Shores sekhtion is pretty difFURent than she rekhalls!
Tank woo fur sharing!
PeeEssWoo: It is BEAWOOTIFUL here today: khurrently 25 but feels like SIX!!! I believe I’ve seen khritters blow by – I hauled around a tree branch in my tether line fur a bit too!
‘Nuff said …
Beautiful sunrises/sets! I am with you on the state parks, especially off-season. Then you can always go to Myrtle Beach to buy those mementos of your trip, get each of the pups a beach ball that says I had a Ball in Myrtle Beach. I know you will want six of those, I just know it.

Looking at the pictures alone and I feel calm!! Beautiful!
I can agree with that. 🙂
I get it! What a gorgeous place. I adore that last photo.
I can appreciate the serenity state parks offer.. particularly off season. Our state parks have similar laws are are diligent about enforcing.
Absolutely beautiful. How’s the weather and water temp? Anyone put there toes in the water?
Beautiful pictures! It looks like you all are having a blast!
Very cool! I would like to come along next time!
I totally understand the want to be away from people – Marge wishes every day of her life were like that. LOL.
Hope you enjoy your get away from it all. This sure will be different after seeing you guys trudge through feet-deep snow – wet sand is so much fun to walk on!
Well, even the Herd needs a break from their adoring fans. high rises and commercial parks are just magnets for the pupparazzi! Now the question is, why the leashes if there are no peeps or dogs around? hmfph! 😉
Wild Dingo – As always, thanks for visiting. Why the leashes? 1) State park law requires dogs to be on 6 foot or shorter leashes and under control at all times, even on the beach. And 2), We Siberians are not exactly known for coming when called and The Herd could end up in Miami if we were off leash.
