Welcome to THE MOUTH of the South Bay

Hello and welcome to South Bay Mouth.

 Many of you may already know why this is site is called The Mouth, but for those that don't, locals commonly call the South Bay, "Mouth Bay."  The South Bay is a section of  South Los Angeles County encompassing a cluster of beach cities.

For a long time now I have wanted to create a place where locals and visitors alike can see what is going on and available to them in the South Bay.  Although I have lived most of my life in the area, I realize there is so much to do and see that I was never aware of.  I hear of great events and local fun and often when I share it with others they say they have lived here for so long and they never knew about it!  So, here we are... My hopes are that this site will provide something new to improve the quality of your life in the South Bay.  I do believe this site will be beneficial to both those living the single life and to families.  Please visit the South Bay Mouth often to stay on top of special events, new restaurants/shops, bargains and sales, reviews and opinions, bands and music, a video from an aspiring Chef or even just a photo of a beautiful sunset.

Stay tuned for updates and posts and please leave comments and share us with your friends.

Marine Mammal Rescue Center in San Pedro

Have you ever been to the Marine Mammal Rescue Center in San Pedro?  I recall going there once to see the Sea Lions and other animals that had been rescued and were being rehabilitated to someday be released back into the wildlife of the Pacific.  I know when I was there, despite the sadness that lurks around the realization of how some people treat these animals when they are in their own habitat, I really did enjoy seeing them more close up and knowing that there are people that care enough to protect and save them.  If you are lucky, you may even get to see pups.

The center is located at Fort MacArthur in San Pedro and it is FREE and open to the public 365 days from 10am - 4pm.  This may be a non traditional family outing during the holiday break.  It can be saddening, but such situations tend to help educate young ones and adults on the truth and may even spark interest in your family to become more involved in the community to help protect our wildlife.

According to the Daily Breeze there are record numbers of this marine wildlife coming into the center and if El Nino hits it is feared that it will be worse.  Volunteers and Donations are both needed, so take a look at their website and go to the center to see these adorable creatures.
