The First Days of Summer

Surprise, surprise...the beach girls spent the first day's of summer in Laguna Beach which include a morning beach walk from Main Beach to Bluebird. Later we did lunch at the lovely Montage Hotel where we dined on our favorite halibut sandwich at The Loft, a restaurant in the hotel. The weather was perfect to capture the incredible views from the hotel. Looks like 4th of July will be just as nice.

500 Swimmers Rescued From Rip Tides

This past weekend, the Volusia County lifeguards in Florida had their work cut out for them with more than 500 water rescues. The majority of saves were due to swimmers getting caught in rip currents. In some cases, entire families were swept away from shore at the same time. Lifeguards say that heavy surf over the last month has contributed to hundreds of rip currents and beach goers have been warned that these conditions could remain for a while. Still with temperatures in the mid- to upper-90s across Central Florida it's hard to keep people out of the water so every lifeguard station was manned and ready last weekend. Luckily, only two people were hospitalized on Friday and they're expected to be OK.

A bill to re-authorize the BEACH Act is moving through Congress.
The Clean Coastal Environment & Public Health Act will do more
to protect public health and improve water quality at our
nation's beaches. Let Congress know that you support clean
beaches and immediate access to critical water quality

Urge your Representatives to support the prompt passage of this

You can take action on this alert either via email (please see
directions below) or via the web at:

Visit the web address below to tell your friends about this.

Beach water pollution is threatening the health of beach-goers and the vitality of coastal economies across this nation. Reliance on slow and outdated monitoring methods is forcing beach managers to make important public health decisions with day-old water quality information. This puts public health at risk and often forces
pre-emptive beach closures, which may or may not end up being necessary.

The Clean Coastal Environment and Public Health Act mandates the adoption of rapid testing methods that provide water quality information within hours of sampling. It forces states to issue beach advisories within 24 hours and sets new standards for
public notification. This bill will also, for the first time, allow state beach grants to be used to track the sources of beach pollution and, in the Senate bill, to clean up these sources.

Help our coastal communities manage clean, healthy beaches by co-sponsoring and supporting the prompt passage of this important piece of legislation. To sign-on, please contact the office of Representative Pallone or Senator Lautenberg. I encourage you to take action by December 30, 2009.

Let Your Sandals Glow

Have you ever had a summer beach day turn into a summer evening? You start a bonfire, and enjoy dinner outside and under the stars. But then the evening ends, you gather your things, and put the fire out. But, oh no, where are your flip-flops?

This can now be prevented if your flip-flops have solar energy and glow in the dark. I present to you Havaianas "Cool" glow-in-the-dark flip-flops ($28). May you never loose your flip-flops again.
