Good Evening -   Typing this from in the rain.  Well, not literally, but a few moments ago, I peaked outside and it was raining.   I've had a few Clients recently ask me about moving to cooler climates.  What beach should I send them to?  There are several in Southern California.  The thought of Sunsets along the Pacific Ocean is breathtaking - even as I type this.  I can hear the waves now!   Beach properties are much higher than Rancho Cucamonga's median sales price of approximately $440,000 - $470,000 depending on the month.    What beach would you recommend to your Clients and Why?   Have a great Oscar Evening!     OMG, who do you want to win?

Now that winter is over, at least in Southern California, thought turns to sun and sand...or in this case Surf and Sand Hotel. As a Lagunite from way back, I have been a Surf and Sand aficionado my entire adult life. Look at the view above and it's clear why that is. But it's not just the table by the ocean that brings me back. Tourists would gravitate towards this kind of view, but as a local, we also need great food and service to keep us coming back. The Surf and Sand Splashes Bar and Restaurant does not disappoint.  Last week, I headed to Splashes to celebrate my 20th Wedding Anniversary, I was married there in 1995. While enjoying this view and sunset which came later, I ate the best Brussels Sprouts I have ever had. Served crispy in a sweet soy sauce and something called Yuzu Cur...

Whale Watching in Newport Beach, CA If you would like to go whale watching, this is the season to consider going out on a boat to see these majestic creatures. Newport Landing is in Newport Beach and has boats which go out several times a day to see these beautiful whales. December through April is the season for Gray Whales, and it is very common to see them along their migration. May through November provides the opportunity to see Blue Whales, and these are the whales which can get up to 80 feet. That is impressive, especially if the boat you are on is not that long. Newport Landing's boat is called the Nautilus and has an indoor snack bar for snacks and beverages. This would be a fabulous trip to take your cameras. Recently, we just had a local Laguna Beach paddle boarder, take his ...

Laguna Beach Public Art Locations   Laguna Beach has long been a jewel along the California Coast. With world class resorts, restaurants and beaches, Laguna has become the destination for vacations and weekend get-aways. In the 1920s, Laguna's natural beauty began to attract artists who were drawn to the quiet beach town. At the time, Laguna Beach was somewhat isolated and this appealed to those early creative residents. Over the years, Laguna Beach has maintained and encouraged it's character as an artist's colony. One of the ways has been to commission local artists to create and install public art pieces.  Located around the city of Laguna Beach, there are now over 65 pieces. The City of Laguna Beach has a map of the art available along with snapshots. Click here to see that map.   J...

Behind the guarded gate of Emerald Bay is a quiet community of luxury homes. Varying from the quaint beach cottage to the huge Tuscan masterpiece, these properties belong to the private beach community of Emerald Bay.Located within the city borders of Laguna Beach, Emerald Bay was developed as a beach get-a-way. Residents from such inland locations as Pasadena and San Marino could escape the heat of summer and enjoy a weekend on the shore. Many of these original bungalow style homes still sit near the sand. Over the past 20 years, it's become easier to get into and out of Laguna Beach. The widening of Laguna Canyon Road as well as the addition of the 73 Toll road, Emerald Bay properties are more likely a full time residence. I spent my youth on the private beach of Emerald Bay. While my...

Local Company Showcase - Laguna Salt Company The Laguna Salt Company's Website states that "It's the most fun you can have playing with your food." Looking and tasting the exotic and colorful salts from their collection, I think they are right.  I was first introduced to the Laguna Salt Company's at the Farmer's Market in Laguna Beach (held each Saturday). The bright flavors and colors were fun to try. As you can see from the picture to the right, even their T-Shirts are fun and come in a jar....Artisan style of course. As a company committed to customer satisfaction and the highest quality ingredients, this is a company I can whole heartily recommend. The Laguna Salt Company's natural mineral sea salts can be found at Farmer's Markets all over the Southland, in specialty stores across ...
