Thanks for this thread! Today Archie, OH and I went to Camber Sands ( east side of beach ) for a 2 hour walk, had a picnic and then went to Fairlight to walk around Hastings Country Park. We had a marvellous day despite slightly dodgy weather this am and I now have a dog that took himself off to bed with complete exhaustion two hours ago !
I have to tell you one funny thing though... and you have to remember that Archie does not like water and will only go into the sea upto his elbows....the tide was going out and there were patches of water left on the sand. Archie had been running through these quite happily when we got to the far end of the beach and he saw a flock of seagulls sitting on the sand. He took off at speed to chase them, ran through what he thought was a shallow patch of water on the sand only to come to a very sudden stand still when he realised he was up to his chin in water !
I have never seen anything so funny in all my life
he looked completely astonished, walked very smartly out of the water, shook himself and then came trotting over as if to say ' What happened? ' Needless to say he avoided wet patches all the way back along the beach !
Anyway thanks for the tip on Camber Sands. The 2 hour drive each way was worth it !
