August 2009: OC Weekly's Month in Photos

Keith May

At an unincorporated no-man's land at mouth of Santa Ana River at border between Newport and Huntington Beaches lies a hidden dog beach--that other dog beach. It's so unknown, in fact, that even when photographer Keith May asked a lifeguard at 74 about it, he had no idea. The beach has no name, no cops, no leash laws. Just dogs running wild and having the time of their lives (there's even a few surfing ones in the mix) in the gentle surf and shallow river. When asked if he had to describe what city the beach is located in, May replied Newport, since the sandbar is on that side of the river. So Newport it is.

August! It came, we sweated, we complained and now it's heading out. Weird. Here's our monthly photo review wrap-up, where we visited everything from hidden dog beaches and No Doubt's triumphant homecoming shows to something called an "insanewich" and Lil Wayne. Aw.
