AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

The Dog Sign

A sign on the Frankston foreshore, Mornington Peninsula.
The leashed message of the sign is quite familiar on my peninsula, but this is the only dog sign displaying a "specific time frame" message in a dog shape?
Perhaps the reason is because it is not far from a children's playground?
(And the time frame represents the summer holidays.)

Dogs so love the beach
But they share it with humans

Maybe it is some kind of bird's nesting time?

I love the foreshore terminology. I am trying to figure out if it means the sandy area above the sand down at t he shoreline. That would make sense. It sure is a great find and a really cool one. genie
