Your dogs will love it just please clean up after them. I don't want to step in that (or my son)
Those sandbars sound like exactly what I'd look for. Maybe graba few friends and make it a thing. We always clean up after our pups, it's the only civilized thing to do. As for stepping in your son, maybe you can put a bright vest on him.........lol.

The thing about PGI, is there aren't really any great beaches here, because we are on the harbor - but in about a half hour you can drive to several great beaches, or you can boat to them. If you move to PGI - you need to join the civic association - you will make a lot of great friends fast, and they do things all the time - including outings to beaches and events.

Thing is - if you live at the beach - the driving is horrible - and you have to drive everywhere to get what you need. Sometimes (depending on where you are) it can take a half hour in a parking lot like road to get in and out - at rush hour during snowbird season especially. Where as if you go to the beach occasionally - you don't mind it so much.
