"Grace" is the most recent public art in Laguna Beach created at the new lifeguard HQ at Main Beach.
"Grace", is the most recent public art commissioned for Laguna Beach at the newly constructed lifeguard headquarters at Main Beach. Terry Thornsley created this bronze, copper and stainless steel mural that includes two figures rowing a dory through churning seas. We will stop at this impressive piece on my Heisler Park/ Downtown Tour. Go to www.LagunaBeachWalks.com to purchase tickets for this fun and engaging two-hour walking tour.
Thank you to the fun couple from the midwest who were visiting Laguna Beach for the second year in a row. They came on my Fitness Tour again and we in got some great exercise while checking out Pyne Castle, Hortense Miller Garden, Pageant of the Masters stage, and the new Lifeguard Headquarters.

Once a year Laguna Beach holds lifeguard tryouts. That was yesterday. In order to hang out in the new lifeguard headquarters (will it be done before summer is the million dollar question), save us from rip tides, and deliver treatment for jellyfish stings/stingray barbs to the foot, you must complete 1000 meter ocean swim in less than 20 minutes. Loved watching all these athletes compete with their parents cheering them on.
This morning I was jogging by the lifeguard tower and saw the 2013 crew of lifeguards assembled for some training. Thanks for keeping us safe! Just as a reminder, here is what the flag colors mean: Green - generally safe conditions. Yellow - increased surf or rip currents present, use caution. Red - strong surf or rip currents present, only strong swimmers with fins.
