Not only to keep it fresh for them but also so that I get to explore this city; I had the pleasure of moving to. Merseyside has some amazing place to see and explore; so I decided to make a dog walking bucket list to ensure I see them all. I am going to make it my mission at least by the end of the year to see at least half of my bucket list. As always I will update this page as we explore and continue my dog walking blog posts…

Moreton Beach At high tide all that can be seen of this beach is the shingle and concrete defences. Whereas; at low tide it’s comparatively different showing the world it’s vast wet sand stretching for miles and miles. Anyone who…
