One of my favorite parks in the area is Point Pinole. This East Bay regional shoreline is absolutely beautiful and has a little bit of everything- water views, city views, a number of different trails with shaded woody areas, wide open fields, and beach areas that are great for some doggie swimming. There are even picnic tables and grill spots in some parts of the park. We love Pinole because Captain can get great exercise here and play with other dogs, but it's not just a dog park- it's also a great spot for people too. And it's pretty close to San Francisco which makes it easy for us to get to.
This Saturday we went to Pinole with my friend and her dog Trax, and it was another great day. We had truly perfect weather.

I caught the tail end of Captain swimming:
Trax finds a great stick:
And there was some crazy running in the fields of course:
The boys were soooooo tired on the way home! Success :-)
