    Apart from temperature issues, you may need to consider algae - there are some poisonous ones that can be dangerous to dogs (perhaps not in your area, though?). When we first took Castor to the seaside he was way too interested in eating seaweed (not the dangerous kind but still not recommended, I think).

I also take a generator, canopy and about 300 gallons of water with us and hook up a misting system to the canopy to keep things cool as the canopy is large enough to fit over my truck and still provide more than enough space for us to lounge around and have plenty of shade if we want. We also bring her crate with us and I will leave the truck running and the AC on full blast and she will go in it to get out of the heat and nap for a bit. Even then we will only stay for about half the time we normally would as I just don't like taking chances with Harlea even though I am prepared to do everything to keep her cool it is a risk I don't take too often.
    Can I come to the beach with you?
    That really is awesome that you can bring your truck (and all the other gear) on the beach. No way does that happen in jersey!

    That is only part of it and doesn't include my AC units. You should see the gear when my entire paintball team is together for an event. We create our own city with our gear.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Now this is being prepared! Wow..
    I will not put Ace in any possible danger, therefore, probably let him see the beach during winter (we get 70deg weather here during winter)
