This is my favorite picture from 2013. It is from the 4th of July paddle out at Brooks St. for an Iraqi vet who died in combat. Happy New Year from Laguna Beach Walks!
I have a challenge for you in 2014: Visit every beach in Laguna. Each one has it's own personality and character. This is Wood's Cove at Diamond St. Here is the best list I could find (random order)...please let me know there is a beach missing from my list. Also, some of these beaches are in gated communities, so you may have to SUP or kayak it there.
Today while I was reflecting on this last year and looking forward to this coming year, I came across a quote from Wyland, a world-renowned marine artist in Laguna Beach: "There are two types of people - anchors and motors. You want to lose the anchors and get with the motors because the motors are going somewhere and they're having more fun. The anchors will just drag you down." I was hanging with a bunch of motors the other night at The Wine Gallery!
Did you know it is a requirement of the City of Laguna Beach Municipal Code for any commercial development valued over $225,000 to install art work to the value of 1% of the project? This piece from Jerry Rothman is on our Heisler Park/Downtown Tour. Love the red hot pokers growing up all around it!
