I don't want anyone to know about Treasure Island.
I'm going to tell YOU about it, but let's keep it our little secret.
When I need alone time, when I want a romantic walk with Briefcase, when I have friends in town visiting …
Basically, anytime –
Treasure Island is where I hang out a good deal of the time.
Treasure Island is in Laguna Beach, but a lot of people who visit Laguna never discover it.
(And that's perfectly fine with me. Please note the empty beach in the above photo.)
The beach is pristine; the water is clear. It's so much prettier than most Southern California beaches.
There are hot men who work at Treasure Island also.
Having grown up on Southern California beaches, I laughed out loud when I first saw a Tidepool Educator.
For someone who has lived on the beach for years, the concept is funny.
A lot of people who visit here know little or nothing about our beaches – especially about preserving them. Visitors think it won't hurt to tromp all over the tidepools and/or to take home a "souvenier" from them.
If everyone takes home one or two beautiful shells and a couple hermit crabs as pets – soon there are none left.
The Montage Resort is providing funding for the Laguna Ocean Foundation to monitor the nearby tidepools. A Tidepool Educator answers questions, provides information about the plants and critters living there, and keeps people from doing anything to destroy the marine habitat.
Have I mentioned the Montage Resort really wants to invite me as a guest so I can tell you about their beautiful resort? No?
Well, I'll work on that ….
In the meantime,
If you're trying to track me down –
There's probably a very good chance you'll find me (and my camera) at Treasure Island.
