Not a good beach day, overcast and foggy; water was refreshing regardless. This is an easy stroll along the beach, which is flat, wide and open; were lots of dogs running around. Several access points.

Sign said no dogs. I wish the data on AllTrails was accurate. Long way to drive to find out you can't take your dog.
