My folks are blessed to live in a beautiful quaint little town right on the Long Island Sound. There is a tiny private beach for just the residents who live in the cove while there is a large public beach down the street aways. I take my son to both of them but during the summer dogs are not permitted at the public beach. Last summer I took care of a pooch named Jelly Bean for a family while they were at work and we spent many mornings at my parents 'little beach'. This is one of my many pictures.
