"One Is Not Enough," the story on second homes by Allison B. Cohen, April 18, is right on. I live in Rosarito Beach -- 20 miles south of San Diego. Since 9/11, our real estate market has really been brisk with those California second-home buyers, with Arizona, Oregon, Washington state and Nevada right behind California.

The union that declared a strike at the Baja California movie lot where "Titanic" was filmed has abandoned the work stoppage, but will fight to continue representing maintenance workers, officials said Thursday. Life was returning to normal at 20th Century Fox studios, which was shuttered with some employees inside from June 9, when the strike was declared, until Monday. "It's finished," studio spokesman Hugo Baylon said Thursday. "They're gone."

"I'D like to recommend a quaint hotel a block from the beach in a delightful section of Rosarito. The Hotel Colonial is comfortable, with ocean views from the second-story rooms. The very affordable rooms have two king beds and look out on a nice courtyard. The owners, Luis and Angelica, operate the hotel and are very gracious. "The nearby restaurant La Estancia offers exquisite steak and seafood, with a romantic setting and superb ambience." Double rooms from $30.

Occasionally we feature a photo because it showcases a spot in Southern California that we don't see in many of our other submissions. (Downtown L.A.'s a lovely place, but please, send us some photos from other parts of the southern half of the state!) So in an attempt to diversify our offerings a little, here's a photo from slightly outside the actual Southern California region. It's of a movie studio right along the coast near Rosarito, Mexico. (Seems like an appropriate connection to L.A.)
