Helaine and I spent Monday afternoon/evening in Laguna Beach. It’s only 20 minutes away, but a world apart as far as cost of living is concerned!
Part of what gives the town its charm and distinctive look is the proximity of the Laguna Hills (“The Hills”) where houses look like they’re stacked on top of each other. And, of course, there’s that beautiful beach.
I figured something was wrong when we got a parking spot at a meter right at the beach. There’s a three hour limit which brought us past 7:00 PM, the end of parking restrictions. I’m never that lucky!
There’s a new activity at the water’s edge: tightrope walking. Sure, it’s a short line, but it’s really difficult (I’m told… I’d never do it). Next time I’ll shoot video so you can see the contortions necessary to stay on the line.
It’s a fun place. We did some window shopping then caught dinner outside in a little bistro.
By the way, the priciest home on the real estate agent’s wall was a little south of $20 million! One can dream.
