It's a ritual. Every winter my husband and I spend two weeks at the same spot on the central Oregon coast. We go to breathe. Breathing is different here - cleaner, deeper, more resolute - just different. We nest in an oceanfront condo near Nye Beach. Always the same unit, reserved a year in advance. Our frontyard is a wide expanse of sandy beach that stretches a mile or so north to Yaquina Head - and maybe six miles south to the rock jetty at the entrance to Newport Harbor. The view from recliners in our condo is among the indelible images we take home - souvenirs of the mind to see us through less tranquil times.

The 5th annual Balboa Island Parade this weekend celebrated the simple pleasures of life in a close-knit community--friendly folks cheering on homemade floats, antique cars and marching bands. Thousands lined the parade route, many waving American flags and holding carnations handed out by volunteers. "Happy parade day!" yelled Lexie-Anne Pappas, 6, of Huntington Beach, as she sat by the curb along the Balboa Island bridge.

Between Black's Beach on the south and Trestles Beach on the north, the shores of North County provide plentiful, diverse surf--from the crisp, clean tubes of Oceanside's sandy beach breaks, to the long, drawn-out walls of the rocky reef break at Swami's in Encinitas. Spots like Black's, Swami's and Trestles are good places to go and watch surfing, but because of the crowds, and the strength of the waves and the currents, they are not good places to learn.

Boosters of the proposed 1,600-mile-long California Coastal Trail say it will be an urban-rural-wilderness collage. That kind of engaging mix is already open to hikers in San Luis Obispo County, along Estero Bay just north of Cayucos. The concept of the California Coastal Trail is to piece together a continuous hiking route along the entire state.

No matter how you may feel about the subject, adult entertainment clubs are a fact of life in Orange County. Scamps in Westminster pushes most of the hot buttons typical to this controversial genre. The club belongs to Jenna Jameson, a well-known performer in adult films. The entertainment is provided by a troupe of female dancers, young, restless types who start their numbers wearing suggestive costumes and finish them wearing nothing. When my friends and I approach the front door, about 11 p.

When the original Skate game was released in late 2007, it succeeded in doing one thing that the very successful Tony Hawk skateboarding franchise didn't do: It made a skating simulator accessible to all. Gone were the maddeningly complex button combos that had to be pushed in exactly the right order to pull off amazing tricks. In Skate, they were replaced with a simple two-control-stick system: one to push the board, one to do the tricks.

Dogs and their people stroll the Strand of Hermosa Beach, taking in the panorama of land and sea, cyclists and sunbathers. Welcome to the Hermosa life. The tiny city in the South Bay celebrated its centennial a year ago. It was incorporated Jan. 14, 1907, and takes its name from the Spanish word for "beautiful." It's easy to see why. Dappled in sun, the flat, sandy beach is as wide and endless as a summer day. Not as frenzied as Venice, not as remote as Malibu, Hermosa seems to beckon all comers looking for a piece of the beach idyll that defines Southern California.

Long Beach has given the Queen Mary a berth and Snoop Dogg plenty to rap about, but there's more to it than that. Just check out the "Lone Sailor." It's one of nine bronze statues placed across the U.S. to honor the men and women of the Navy. The "Sailor" stands in Bluff Park, overlooking the harbor. A testament to the area's nautical ties, it's just one of the noteworthy things about the adjoining community. Beginnings The Long Beach Museum of Art, on the southwestern border of Bluff Park, is housed in a Craftsman mansion, the Elizabeth Milbank Anderson House.

When Don and Gigi Maurizio set out to gut and redo their condo in Rosarito Beach, Mexico, they didn't have to hold a yard sale or haul stuff to a thrift shop or the dump. The Claremont couple simply alerted the staff at La Paloma, the gated development where their beachfront condo is located, that whatever was in the two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit -- sofas, televisions, cookware, dishes -- was free for the taking.

In the darkness of a new moon, a dozen black-crowned night herons landed on a San Pedro beach and stood like sentinels facing the open ocean. "That's a good sign," whispered marine biology researcher Jenn Corpuz, 26. "The herons know there is something coming." Suddenly, the surf shimmered with flashes of silver, and a few small, slender fish wriggled on shore, as if to size up the situation. Then thousands of fish began riding in on the swells and piling up on the beach in writhing clots.

Once, it was enough to be Arizona's beach, a nice wide patch of below-the-border shoreline where college kids could camp out and drink too much. But now, it wants to be more than a parent's nightmare. In less than a decade, more than three-dozen condo towers have risen in this town's Sandy Beach area, surrounded by ever-widening waves of upscale vacation homes.

"Don't cover those coals," State Parks and Recreation Director Henry R. Agonia has warned picnickers who cook food on state beaches, including those in Orange County. Beachgoers sometimes build illegal fires on a sandy beach then, ready to leave, cover the fires with sand, Agonia said. But he warned that they are mistaken when they believe they have put out the fire. The sand will not quench the hot coals from a beach barbecue--it just insulates them, he said.

WAS there life before Rehab? I'm really not convinced. It's hard to remember what Vegas' beautiful night-life elite did on scorching Sunday afternoons before the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino dropped this bit of genius on us in 2004. I certainly don't think they were going to church.

I looked around as we emerged from the crowded bus into the seaside piazza, and I knew our gamble had paid off. White, sandy beach skirted the deep blue waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea that lay straight ahead. Behind me, magenta bougainvillea spilled out of window boxes and clung to the walls and balconies of modest, low-slung hotels and cafes. The ancient town of Sperlonga rose abruptly on my left, capping a rocky headland with buildings of cream, almond and bone.
