California Travel Tips

Loving Laguna

Published on: December 13, 2018


LAGUNA BEACH, CALIF. — Laguna is a place to step out of the daily hustle and bustle, dig your feet into the sand and savor life, according to author Skip Hellewell, who first saw it on a field trip with a group of Boy Scouts intent on learning how to surf in 1958.

Skip fell in love with the quaint town and never forgot it. After a very successful career with medical device companies around California, he was able to live in Laguna Beach and figure out why it’s so unique.

The author and newspaper columnist wrote a fascinating book, “Loving Laguna,” which was deliciously designed by his daughter, Brooke Hellewell Reynolds. Using historical and modern photos, the reader can begin understanding why Laguna Beach has been one of the most dazzling, desirable destinations to live or visit anywhere.
