Beach Poster shown above advertises the annual pancake breakfast held in
Sunset Beach, California. Sunset Beach is a
beachfront community in Orange County's northern region, approximately 35
miles south of Los Angeles & LAX. Not far from one of the world's busy ports, Port of Los
Angeles, it also is located near the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station.
Offshore activities include military ships, huge freighters from around the
globe and pleasure craft leaving and entering the channel from Huntington
Harbour to the Pacific Ocean.
All this activity in a
great little town that stretches along the ocean about a mile north to south
assures that residents are by no means tucked away in time and space. Still,
a tight-knit group of community-concerned citizens who cherish their
beaches, history, children, surfing, businesses and volunteer fire department.
Pancake Breakfast is one
of the events held throughout the year to promote friendship amongst
neighbors, and to raise money for worthy causes ranging from equipment for
the fire department to cultural trips and art classes for students.
Visitors are invited to
join in the fun and volunteer, even. But to buy your way into Sunset
Beach, the entry fee is above $1 million for a modest beach shack
currently. $5 pancakes are a heck of a deal!
