Laguna Beach is unique in so many ways it’s almost difficult to remember them all, beginning with the beaches and secluded coves. Then we have sprawling cliff tops overlooking and the reefs that adorn the shoreline from one end of Laguna to the other. There are greenbelts and steep canyon faces that sit, literally, just across the street from these beautiful beaches. My favorite view of our town is that from the ocean when you can see just how different Laguna really is from our neighbors to the north and south of us. From the ocean you can see that along the coast of Laguna our canyons nearly come all way down to the beach, especially at Nyes Place, reminding one of a little European village near the ocean.

Sunsets that last forever. Temperatures that beg off the idea of winter. Laguna basks in the sing/song swing of seasons. I sat at the Rooftop Bar at Kya, with friend Cathy Cox, and admired the broad brush strokes of color that swept the sky and the surface of the sea. We’d come for happy hour and the bar was packed with like-minded sunset worshipers. The sun edged lower toward the now-silhouette of Catalina, and it seemed everyone paused in honor of the day’s end. Cameras flashed repeatedly in attempts to capture the moment.

After 12 years in Laguna Beach, Sundried Tomato American Bistros and Catering is closing. "We have decided not to renew our lease option," managing partner Rob Quest wrote in a prepared statement. "Unfortunately the location no longer fits our model because of its size and overhead. Sunday, Oct. 27, will be our last day of service at that location [361 Forest Ave.]. " The Laguna Beach restaurant is the smallest of Sundried Tomato's existing establishments, which include spots in San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano, the statement said.

A new hot spot that caters to locals has opened its doors in the village. Blue Laguna Restaurant Lounge — from the entrepreneurs of Los Angeles’ Blue Moon Lounge — has moved into the old Bamboo space on the corner of Cleo Street and South Coast Highway. The swanky spot in the Holiday Inn offers fine dining inside and out, an extensive “hand-picked” wine list, brews, happy hour specials and live music entertainment every night of the week.

Editor’s note: Catharine Cooper is filling in for Cherril Doty, who is ill. There’s a change in the air. Aside from the fact that today it isn’t raining, and the wind isn’t threatening to carry me skyward and plop me someplace in Baja (wait, maybe not a bad idea), something in the local energy has shifted. It might be hints of spring that have begun to show off their colors and scents. A bank of sweet yellow freesias beckons from my neighbor’s slope.
