Presidential inaugural gala planning under way Laguna Beach will be the scene of a gala celebrating the inauguration of Barack Obama as U.S. president. Denny Freidenrich, an Obama supporter, came up with the idea, which caught fire among his friends, days after Obama won the election. Laguna’s inaugural gala will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 20 at [seven-degrees]. That is the day Obama will be sworn in as the nation’s 44th president. “We want people to come away from our event feeling like they actually attended one of the inauguration balls,” said Betsy Gosselin, who is on the planning committee.

It’s been almost 30 years since a campground was proposed at the site of the former El Morro Village Trailer Park at Crystal Cove. Now trucks are rolling and a new $22 million campground for RVs and tents, plus other amenities, is beginning to take shape on the 35-acre site. The park is expected to open in spring or summer of 2010, said Ken Kramer, Orange Coast District superintendent of the state Department of Parks and Recreation, which owns the park. Earth-moving equipment is contouring a new parking lot and amphitheater at the lower level of the site, while the old trailer park configuration makes a perfect RV park on the upper property, Kramer said.

Emily, Terry?s daughter, loves breakfast for dinner and so does Elle?s sweetie, Tim. In fact, lots of people like this rearrangement of the daily dining ritual, but in this town there doesn?t seem to be any place that caters to these antipodal appetites, except for The Pacific Whey Café in Crystal Cove. So, while you might chow down on old-fashioned meatloaf or chicken Florentine marinara, they can dig into bacon and eggs or buckwheat hotcakes. Not only can you have breakfast for dinner, but also you can get homemade chili or beef stroganoff at 10:30 a.m. In addition to the fact that you can order just about everything all day long, the food is pretty tasty, portions are generous and their burger is one of the best in town.

Giant kelp is coming back to local waters, and Crystal Cove State Park visitors can see it for themselves. Kelp is the subject of the park’s first exhibit in the newly renovated Rotating Exhibit Facility, located in the Historic District of restored 1930s-era cottages. Giant Kelp and the Coastal Ecosystem, sponsored by the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, opened to the public in June and will run through the end of September. Marine biologist and exhibit creator Nancy Caruso said the purpose of the exhibit is to educate the community about the diminishing kelp forests and its importance in daily life.

I was lost in reverie as I walked the sands of Crystal Cove on a recent morning. There was much on my mind and this long walk was designed to bring clarity as well as renewed energy for the day ahead. Writing in my journal earlier, I had set in motion the idea that the day would be filled with abundance of beauty and its counterpart — beauty of abundance. Vague enough and yet purposeful, too. There had been too much loss touching my life the past couple of months, and it seemed important to refocus.

The next phase for El Moro Canyon ? where trailers and mobile homes stood since the 1950s ? is set to begin soon. Construction of the long-awaited El Moro Campground at Crystal Cove State Park is expected to begin after the July 4 weekend, Crystal Cove State Park Supt. Ken Kramer said Monday. State Parks officials recently awarded a $12 million public works project contract to Los Angeles Engineering, Inc. for the conversion of the former El Morro Village trailer park site to a state park campground, beach, and picnic area.
