Today was another beautiful Autumn day in Melbourne!
We decided to take the pugs to Williamstown to
enjoy the beautiful weather.
First walk (on leash) was through the Williamstown Botanic
Gardens (Corner Giffard and Osborne Streets, Williamstown).
These gardens are absolutely stunning!

Mum I can't believe you are making us pose on this park bench!
Not going to smile. No way. This is silly!
Across the road from the Williamstown Botanic Gardens
are the reserves along the bay. Hatt Reserve directly opposite
is a dog-on-lead walking area, but just a short walk along the
bayside path and you will arrive at Cyril Curtain Reserve,
which is an off-leash area for dogs.

Sunshine! Walking in Hatt Reserve
On our way to the rock pools ;)
We decided to take the girls down to the rock pools.
Poppet enjoyed meeting a dalmation and laying in the sun
on the sand, while Gypsy was splashing in water,
chasing seagulls and hopping in and out of rocks.
It is a great place for dogs, relatively quiet
and exciting for dogs who love exploring
(Gypsy is true to her name- she loves discovering new places).
Playing in the rock pools ;-)
We love the bay!
Day 2 of splashing! Yayeeeee!
The big dog rock pool ;-)
Be sure to check the reserve signs along Hobsons Bay so you can
choose a lovely place to interact with your dog in the gorgeous
surrounds. Most are dog-friendly, you will just need to know
which areas are off-leash ;) If you would like to check before you
make the trip ~ here is the link to off-leash areas in Hobsons Bay
from the City Council webpage:
We hope the sunshine holds out a little longer, we are loving
the cooler days with streams of sunshine to provide just enough warmth.
Perfect pug weather!
