Thank you to all the volunteers who helped get Riddle Field ready for the 2013 Little League season yesterday. We had Zero Trash Laguna spearheading the clean up, the coaches prepping the field, and some mom's organizing the snack bar. Of course there is a public art piece at Riddle: Steven Harmon's "Cathexis", which is a sculpture of intertwined scrolls.
Time to check out some of Laguna Beach's interesting architecture. This Tudor Revival style building on PCH was built in 1937 by architect Aubrey St. Clair. Check out the elaborate chimney capped with terra cotta pots and the overlay of wood on stucco called half-timbering. Aubrey also designed the Fire Department, City Hall and the Water District buildings in town. Gotta give credit to the Smith Brothers Building for their construction of this building which initially housed their offices.

Come to Second Reef Surf Shop at Thalia and PCH to refill your Laguna Beach Walks reusable water bottle. You will save the planet AND some hard earned cash! Use that extra money to buy a killer new swim suit for the summer.
There is a new artist designed bench in Heisler Park! Larry Gill and Gavin Heath created a bench of cast and blown glass in concrete called, "Tide Pool Paddleboard". Come see it in person on my Heisler Park/Downtown walking tour!
If you come on my Heisler Park/Downtown walking tour, you will see this piece from artist Jerry Rothman. He developed a no-shrink clay to support cantilevered structures that could not previously have been made. Anyone know the name of the other Jerry Rothman piece that is installed in Heisler Park?
