Which Baby is Cuter?

Okay, this poll is going to be a tough vote!!! Which baby is cuter?

On the left, this baby is a sea lion. Sea lions have giant, elongated fore flippers, are very noisy, and enjoy sunning themselves on rocks. Californa sea lions are the "trained seals" you'll see at marine parks and circuses, as they're very intelligent and enjoy performing.

On the right, this baby is a sea otter. It was spotted playing in the surf near Laguna Beach about two years ago. It was only the second sighting of sea otters in the area in more than 30 years, and a welcome sign of a possible resurgence of sea otters in Southern California.

Artists from around the U.S., 35 to be exact, were selected to participate in this week's 19th annual Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational. This annual event showcases plein air landscape painters who scatter throughout the city to create their works of art while competing for prizes.

This year's event, organized by the Laguna Plein Air Painter's Association, began on Saturday, October 7th and runs for nine days through Sunday, October 15th. The event includes a "Collector's Gala" in which guests can buy the original artworks at the end of the week.

Main Beach (https://goo.gl/iRBTrX)

Over the past two weeks, we have been sharing the 10 Best Places to Visit in Laguna Beach with you, one at a time so we could give each one the full attention it deserved. Last week, we talked about Heisler Park, Crystal Cove State Park, Thousand Steps Beach, Laguna Coast Wilderness Park, and Laguna Niguel Regional Park. You can read more about each of these destinations here: (https://goo.gl/8MKf5t)

This week, we are sharing the remaining 5 from our list (https://goo.gl/iRBTrX). So far, we have talked about Crescent Bay Beach and Crescent Bay Point Park, Victoria Beach, Fisherman's Cove, and Aliso Beach Park. Today, we wanted to talk more about Main Beach.

If you want to be within walking distance to everything ... shopping, restaurants, art galleries, parks, and beaches, then you definitely want to stay near Main Beach, Laguna's "Window to the Sea" right here in the heart of downtown Laguna Beach.

Main Beach is a beachfront park with sand volleyball courts, basketball courts, and a playground. There are also plenty of benches and picnic tables, making it the perfect place for a picnic lunch. Facilities also include public showers and restrooms.

The tide pool area is located in the northern section of Main Beach and a stroll along the boardwalk will lead you up the pathway to Heisler Park.

Fisherman's Cove (https://goo.gl/iRBTrX)

Last week, we shared 5 of the 10 Best Places to Visit in Laguna Beach (https://goo.gl/8MKf5t) with you, one at a time so we could give each one the full attention it deserved. This week, we are sharing the remaining 5 from our list (https://goo.gl/iRBTrX). So far, we have talked about Crescent Bay Beach and Crescent Bay Point Park and Victoria Beach. Today, we wanted to talk more about Fisherman's Cove.

Located in between Diver's Cove and Shaw's Cove, Fisherman's Cove offers great diving opportunities and is a popular site for divers regardless of their experience level.

If you enjoy diving, check out the rock outcroppings on the north side as they are excellent for discovering sea life; and, the south side contains a large rock reef system that is also loaded with sea life.

If you go to Fisherman's Cove during high tide, you might find that the entire beach is submerged ... and you definitely don't want to leave items on the beach when the tide is coming in!
