I had the BEST time with Valentine and Jenna on our girls day to South Coast Botanic Gardens! Thanks to my friend Sara, I found out that they have dog walking hours once a month so I could bring Valentine!
It’s pretty close to where I grew up and the last time I went was probably in high school on a field trip–it was SO much better than I remember it to be! Probably because I have more appreciation for it now lol.
I love how big the space was and how some parts felt like walking through the woods while others like a garden. Valentine had an AMAZING time and even met some doggy friends including the cutest corgi puppy! Our favorite part was probably when we came across a bunny who didn’t care 2 strangers and a dog were staring at them lol. They just went along their business–grooming, dozing off, and even eating a leaf! It was so cute :)
Here are more photos. If you plan on being in the area or are looking for a dog friendly activity, I highly recommend visiting these gardens!
PS: The next dog walking hours day is June 27th!
PPS: Can you find the bunny we met in one of the photos below?
