Huntington Beach Pier

By John Reger | June 14, 2007
Whenever I get the urge to ride my bicycle a little farther south than the usual six-mile trip to the Huntington Beach Pier, I venture toward Newport Beach. I put a $10 bill in my pocket and stop at The Crab Cooker for a crab cocktail. Then I take it over to the pier and enjoy it while watching the ocean, temporarily forgetting any concern about the afternoon sea breeze that will make the ride home seem like triple the distance I had just peddled. When I was a youth living in the suburbs of Los Angeles, Newport Beach was a mystery to me, like a distant, foreign land.

Courtney Conlogue is showing off her latest artwork when a mother and her child pass by the Huntington Beach Pier. "Hi!" screams the toddler. "That's a surf girl," mom tells her daughter, who jubilantly nods her head. Conlogue waves her hands at the girl, grabbing her attention even more. The girl in the stroller loves what she sees — cool skeleton drawings on Conlogue's hands. Make no bones about it, Conlogue is fearless. The 14-year-old wears it. Those markings on her hands are reminders of the poundings she might have to endure when pulling into massive barrels.

HUNTINGTON BEACH ? Erica Hosseini didn't really judge her performance on Saturday in the final of the Target Women's Pro Junior at the U.S. Open of Surfing by the third-place finish. The 2005 Newport Harbor High graduate said she was just happy to compete in the Women's Junior Pro event, which is in just its second year. "I would have liked to win it, obviously," said Hosseini, 19. "But I tried my best and got some fun waves. The conditions were good, and it was a fun day."

When covering breaking news, landmarks help to tell readers where the event occurred. In many cases, the environment around the police tape is hard to distinguish from any other place in a city. In photographer Kent Treptow's picture of the scene of a car chase that ended with a suicide near the foot of the Huntington Beach Pier, at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and Main Street, fewer landmarks would be better known. The Ruby's restaurant at the end of the pier and the lifeguard headquarters at its foot give readers a sense of exactly where the events took place.

As the OC Marathon draws nearer, runs are getting longer, but there's joy in the morning and in the company.EDITOR'S NOTE: This is part of a series following Newport Beach's Grant Dunning as he trains for his first marathon -- the Orange County Marathon on Jan. 8, 2006. Only two months to go before I cross the starting line of the Orange County Marathon with my daughter, Paige. Even though the training started more than three months ago, the time is flying by fast. During the past couple of weeks, I have completed several training runs while pushing my daughter in her adaptive stroller.
