Once I let go of furbaby’s lead to use 2 hands to take a photo. A lady came racing up to me and told me that her friend let go of her dog’s rope so he could go for a swim and she got fined by rangers who had been patrolling the beach early in the morning.
So I wrote to our lovely Lord Mayor and suggested why not make ALL beaches off leash until 7am so dogs could swim and play on the beach, also negating the need for rangers to begin work so early.
There are mostly joggers, surfers and people walking their dogs.
Makes sense, right? Let the dogs out to play!!!
Well, in their infinite wisdom, my suggestion was passed on to someone who either never gets to the beach in the morning or didn’t read what I wrote.
Part of the response back was that lifesavers have to leave the flagged areas (tee hee - never seen flags up that early and I mentioned rangers, not our gorgeous volunteers) to confront dog owners - (because we are all such confrontational people with vicious dogs - like furbaby pictured) and he also said we have plenty of dog parks to use. Hmmmm. #amusedbynow
Made me remember why I find it hard to warm to politicians... Off to tweet Mr Trump now - maybe he’ll actually read what I write...
