The sunny 46° temps drew dogs of all breeds and their owners to Tod’s Point in Old Greenwich this Saturday.

Groups of owners stood bundled in sweaters, jackets, and scarves as their pups ran through the sand and chased after balls.

The number of people and pets in attendance created a social scene for humans and canines alike. While some dogs played in groups, others were content to walk leisurely alongside their owners.

Dogs are allowed at Tod’s Point Beach from December 1 to March 31.
