As the weekend aproaches,sometimes as parents, we wonder what to do that could be educational and fun.
Well, this coming Saturday the 11th, the annual cleanup event at Doheny Beach is taking place, from 9am to noon. There has been some winter rains and runoff that needs some serious cleanup, and what a better way to show our kids how to take care of our beaches by helping a little.
Bring your gloves and join us to get Doheny back in shape so we can all enjoy it ! Plus, who doesn't want to be at the beach with this beautiful weather? BTW, it's supposed to be in the high sixty's low seventy's, and sunny all day on Saturday!.
All beach cleanups meet at the lifeguard headquarters (adjacent to the mouth of San Juan Creek).
Did I also mentioned that Dana Point joined Laguna Beach and became the first cities in Orange County to vote to ban plastic bags, passing similar ordinances Tuesday night to prohibit businesses from providing single-use plastic bags to customers?
Hopefully all of these efforts would help have a cleaner Dana Point.
Also, Dana Point busy calendar year is set with various special events coming up:
1.March 3-4, and 10-11 Festival of Whales, with the celebration being kicked off as a tradition by the Whales Parade on March 3rd, along Pacific Coast Highway.
2. April 20-21 California Wine Festival, a one of a kind wine tasting experience. The event kicks off at the Dana Point Yacht Club April 20th, and the Festival takes place on April 21st at Doheny State Beach. Sun, sea and music, plus the obvious wine and food tasting.
3. May 6 Dana Point Grand Prix of Cycling, an event that raises money for local charities.
Not a bad idea to look for homes in Dana Point and enjoy all of these events as part of the community.
