Sometimes all you need is time with a living creature!
At It's Beach in Santa Cruz, dogs swarm the beaches visitors. With a lengthy beach, a beautiful arch, and endless dogs if you are ever feeling down you can change that with a simple visit to this beach. I love coming to this sand pit and cuddling with those dogs who fancy me. Sometimes I get to throw a ball for a few different dogs and/or pet them until their owners say it's time to go!
Maybe you are not into the whole beach scene, that is chill as well because there are plenty of places to play with dogs away from that sand which never leaves your body!
