Aliso Beach Bee

Bee concerned? Nahhhhhh!

Over the last week or so, I received a website inquiry making reference to bees at Aliso Beach.  I forgot about the email and may have accidentally deleted it, and so I will address whether or not she should bee concerned about our buzzing friends at Aliso Beach here on the blog.

It is ironic that when I drove into the driveway yesterday that there were enough bees airborne and around my car that I wasn’t going to take my chances.  I decided pull out of the driveway and roll down to to get a beer and return after darkness. They were landing on the car and flying every which way you could think of. This reminded me to follow up on the concern of someone wishing to visit Aliso Beach.

I have done a previous post on bees at Aliso Beach.  With all the talk of colony collapse disorder and bees vanishing, I think there is hope in seeing bees at Aliso Beach.  Bees are attracted to the sugary drinks and food items that we put into trash cans at this South Laguna Beach.  It is very common for the bees to be hovering over and flying into the trashcans in search of the syrupy left overs we throw away.  Since the trash cans line the sidewalk just inches from the sand, beach visitors cross pass with these little guys all of the time, and yes people do get stung.  I have been there when it has happened.

Should the presence of bees at Aliso Beach keep you from enjoying one of the most beautiful and accessible beaches in Laguna Beach?   While it is a good thing to bee concerned, I don’t think that the bee threat rises to a level that should have you concerned for your safety.  For tips on how to avoid the bees you might like my previous post on bee safety at Aliso Beach.

Paradise!

Aliso Beach is a special, special place for me in Laguna.  It is a favorite spot of water photographer and filmmaker Scotty Carter, who over the course of working on helping to promote his photographic art, has become extended family.  With his work, the team at Aliso Beach can help you Aliso Beach your home with the incredible photography of waterman Scotty Carter.

The smell of the ocean, the merciless pounding of its shore break waves, the soothing breezes, the aqua-green water color, and the coastal hills offer a tranquil setting to beach goers while the body boarders,  soft top surfers, and the skim boarders all make this an interesting and spirited community that I have enjoyed being a part of.

One of the ways we humans show our appreciation for the natural environments we covet is to display art featuring it.  Why?  It is not explainable in many ways, but we are so deeply connected to nature that the places we experience leave a mark on us that is both unforgettable and difficult to explain. Our homes are a reflection of who we are and the art reminds us of the outdoor settings that in part define us. We are moved by sun, sea, waves and coastal breezes. This little place we call Aliso Beach is one of those locations that leaves us better than we were before we visited!  You can’t put a price on the wonder, tranquility and soothing that this incredible slice of Laguna Beach delivers.

If you love Aliso Beach, and would like to include Aliso Beach art and imagery in your home, contact me at info@alisobeach.com.  If you are like me, you love Aliso Beach and it is a part of you.  I recommend the 72 x 48″ size because you can look up at and feel like you are in the barrel.  It’s priceless!
