Wally's Beach

We live a thousand miles from the ocean but Wally's Beach at St. Mary's Reservoir is the next best thing.  We haven't been there in a couple of years but decided this weekend to take Zack somewhere different for some off leash fun.  Now camping season is over there was hardly anybody there and there was 100 feet of sandy shore (no mud!!) that went for 1 - 2 km.    I have never seen the water this low before so the beach was huge and perfect :)

Between the beach and his new chuck it ball Zack had a blast.   I  could tell he was just as excited as we were about the open beach.  

He did some impressive sliding stops to get his ball.

Back and forth he went

Zack even went into the water to get his ball - we were just shocked.   He didn't swim but didn't hesitate to go in after his ball.   The water was shallow and there are no rocks just sand  - may be he could tell LOL.

It's too bad all summer there are so many campers as the beach would be full.   Now with this small window of opportunity before the snow flies we will have to make the most of this beach.   Access is not good if it snows or is muddy so every weekend I think we might make a trip out there if the weather holds.   The colder the better as there will be no one camping then!!!

There is even a small thicket of trees and bushes among the sand dunes giving Zack even more fun to sniff out critters on the way back to the car.

It makes my day seeing him have such a good time.   A little less boring than walking in the city.   I will post more pictures of Wally's Beach in the days to come.

We went this morning and it was awesome. I think I'm going to sneak back there on Thursday during my break. If I hurry, I can make it there and back and still have time to eat. ;)

Wow, its nice to see some photos of you on a beach Zacky. We know its not as easy to do beaches in a big country like Canada.
