Being a vacationing dog on the Cape in the summer is a challenge if you want to enjoy the beach and a swim. Most beaches are closed to dogs until after Labor Day. How unfortunate that natures beauty cannot be enjoyed by all God's creatures. Irresponsible dog owners who don't pick up after their pets and allow them to run free when joggers and children are about ruin it for those who are resposible. We did manage to enjoy the bayside after 4pm where dogs are allowed. At low tide we walk way out to the water's edge where, for a brief moment, dogs can be dogs and run free.
