Ah yes, spring fever is back and fluttering around under the sunny skies of Laguna Beach with the celebration of two of our community’s greatest fixtures today.
The first celebration will be the retirement of legendary lifeguard Mark Klosterman, which will be at the main lifeguard tower on Main Beach from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., followed at 6 p.m. by a dinner at Tivoli Too. The cost is $35 per person, with music by the Blue Hawaiians.
Growing up on the beaches of Laguna, I always looked up to Klosterman, the one lifeguard that I can honestly say I never threw ice plant at — or worse, pee bombs. For me, that’s saying a lot because I used to bomb all the guards from my parents’ deck.
