No matters how good is the beginning, it will come to an end. This also applies to my vacation in this lovely Melbourne. I spent almost 20 days in foreign land. I wrote this article on my last day here. At the day before, my family and I took an hour trip to Brighton Beach for its beautiful coastline. We took tram to Flinders Station, transit point for us to take the train to Brighton Beach where we spent nearly three hours to walk along the 2 km long beach. It really a new refreshing experience for us and we discovered a few attraction that made our trip very fruitful.
The whole journey took about 11 stops and passing through the sub-urban areas. I must say that the town is very well planned based on the grid plan originated from India since 5,000 years ago. The grid plan, grid street plan or gridiron plan is a type of city plan in which streets run at right angles to each other, forming a grid.
Once you reached the beach, you will sense the sea breeze was rather strong and you may need to put your jackets on. It is also well known as doggie beach amongst those who love dogs. This incredibly beach offers diverse nature of things to do especially for those who like to see their pets running and playing around this doggie beach in Brighton, Melbourne (Australia). It truly makes a perfect relaxing venue for everyone!
This beach is also known as Doggie beach. This is because it is also a perfect off-lead area for dogs, with bushes to explore, sand to run on, water to swim in and many friends to be made. Dogs like humans need to socialize with other dogs. This beach uniquely offers that opportunity. Life is lovely and wonderful as the opportunities are everywhere and every moment await for you to notice.
The area is fully fenced in, and very secure. However, smaller dogs may be able to fit through the gaps at the gate if they really wanted to. This beach is large and unique, but the exact size depends on the tide. When the tide is out, seaweed is visible, another novelty for your dog. Some dog love sniffing seaweed. Can someone tell me more why they love to do that? The beach is unique because of the tide, the other dogs and the weather, every trip to doggie beach is different.
And best of all, it's free and clean! Walk in one of three gates, taking care to shut it behind you, and a new world beckons you. You will find some complimentary doggie bags, next to a rubbish bin. Cleanliness of this beach is everyone concern.
There are bushes for adventurous pups and owners. There are creative twisting pathways through the bushes and trees. These go up and down the small hills and are very popular among the cyclists and climbers. There are many interesting scents; this area of doggie beach is extremely excellent for curious and inquisitive dogs who like exploring. Dream, explore and discovery make life truly exciting.
Away from the bushes and grass is pure sand. This sandy area is brilliant for dogs that like running wild and free as nature offers. A tennis ball might be a fun game for you and your dog to play, but don't be surprised if some other dogs decide to join in the game too! This is where you can find the best views truly are, because you are just like place in a triangle to get an amazingly spectacular view. Append below are photos taken at each angles for your viewing. You are nearly surrounded by water, and behind you is golden sand where your dog can play with some new friends.
Colourful Beach Huts
A beach hut also known as a beach cabin or bathing box is a small, usually wooden and often brightly coloured, box above the hightide mark on popular bathing beaches. They are generally used as a shelter from the sun or wind, changing into and out of swimming costumes and for the safe storing of some personal belongings. Some beach huts incorporate simple facilities for preparing food and hot drinks by either bottled gas or occasionally main electricity. From the photo, you can see those beautiful and colourful beach boxes, a latest attraction in this doggie beach. It is interesting to note that most are not equipped with even basic facilities such as water and electricity; therefore it is not suitable for night stay.
Beautiful Bungalow and Memorable Monument
On my way back from the beach, I have the fortune to have a short chat with a life guard. See he even allowed me to take a photo of him. His name is Toy. I was told that the beach will be full of people during January and February where people have their summer holidays and this beach is one of their favourite. He is the only one on duty as there are hardly any swimmers there. The pole in the sea indicates about 11 meter depth and many swimmers underestimated their capability and lack strength to swim to this point and may inflict self-danger.
To capture the best views, many bungalows are built along the road facing this beautiful coastline and the Memorable Monument for those who fought during the First World War. Append are some of the photos that I have taken for my memorable trip.
I must say that your trip to Melbourne is not complete without inclusion of this unique doggie beach. You will enjoy even if you did not bring your dog along. It is truly enjoyable and relaxing when you walk slowly and steadily along this beautiful coastline. That’s why I took so many photos for your viewing.
