Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant & Pub lost a few palm trees during a freeze earlier this year, so artist Jeff Chouinard, aka Surf Soul Tiki, helped the restaurant carve a replacement. He replaced the trunks of two trees by carving two totem poles.
One features a happy fisherman with a mahi-mahi; the second is an angry fisherman with a large boot. Chouinard will carve a third totem pole/tree that will be portable.

PHOTO OF THE DAY: Leaving the Nest
Unhatched sea turtle eggs lay on the beach after Cyndi Seamon, a longtime Longboat Key Turtle Watch volunteer, excavated a nest Wednesday, July 9. Fellow volunteer Lindsey Conrad then separates the eggs to see how many hatched and possibly made it to the water. The Longboat Key Turtle Watch patrols the beaches at sunrise each morning.
