Horseshoe Beach

Recently I had a great weekend in Newcastle at the Newcastle Writers Festival. It was a wonderful festival but after being cooped up inside all weekend I was keen to get some sea air so went for a walk out along the breakwall at Nobby's. It was a perfect way to end my weekend.

On the way out you walk past Horseshoe Beach, Newcastle's only leash free beach for dogs.

They just love it.

It was fun to watch the dogs gambolling in the late afternoon sun. Although the beach did smell rather strongly of dog poo at times. A couple of times I thought some of the dogs were getting a bit out of control, but there was no aggression, just dogs having fun.

Newcastle has some wonderful beaches as you have shown. I didn't know they had a leash free beach there.
