Lolita Harper It was the yellow one, just off the brick path that had not been spotted by the bunch. The lone egg sat patiently under a branch of pine, while the children milled about the backyard, looking for the last egg. "It's on the ground, close to the brick walkway," said Denny Pender, the proud hider of the elusive egg. "Dad, where?" daughter Presley Pender asked. Her father was silent, answering only with a smirk. Nearly two dozen children scoured Elaine and Dick Smith's huge frontyard, the sight of the neighborhood egg hunt.

My neighborhood held its annual Easter egg hunt Sunday, just as it has for the 25 years I’ve lived here. The agenda was pretty much as it has always been, only the faces had changed. The hard-core veterans who have lived here as long or longer than I have still run the show. But young families are moving in and putting down roots and preparing for heavier duties. And a new generation of small people is learning how to get inside the heads of the people hiding the eggs — especially eggs with money in them.

About 40 local homeless children spent Saturday morning hunting for colorful Easter eggs, a tradition they would normally miss had it not been for Newport Dunes Resort and its work with the Orange Coast Interfaith Shelter in Costa Mesa. The kids joined about 600 to 700 other children and hunted for 6,000 eggs, all of which had some gifts, including 50 golden eggs with big prizes. “Newport Beach is one of the most affluent cities in the nation, and people don’t realize that there are many homeless people here in our backyard,” said Frank Groff, spokesman for Newport Dunes Resort, which began the Easter egg hunt and pancake breakfast 18 years ago. Seven years ago, Newport Beach Dunes partnered with Costa Mesa’s interfaith shelter, which provides families with homes, jobs and counseling.

Stefanie Frith NEWPORT BEACH -- The brightly-colored plastic Easter eggs that lined the shore at the Newport Dunes Resort Saturday morning did not last very long. As soon as the announcer at the 10th annual "Egg-stravaganza" at the resort said "Go," hundreds of children clutching baskets took off down the sand, making the families on the sidelines cheer and laugh out loud. And within minutes, the eggs were collected, stored in baskets and then opened to see what goodies were inside.

Andrew Edwards Two Easter egg hunts held Saturday had very different flavors. One could have been timed with a stopwatch, the other was part of a leisurely nature walk. The first event was held by the side of Newport Bay, the second, amid Costa Mesa mustard plants. Aside from the differences, the two events had a key element in common, both were attended by throngs of children searching for Easter eggs. At the earlier event, the Easter Weekend Egg-stravaganza at the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort, youngsters scrambled across the sand in a mad dash for about 4,000 hard-boiled and plastic eggs that had been strewn across the beach.

A thin line of green tape and some self control was the only thing holding back the stampede. The racers were primed, leaning as far forward as they could without falling or bracing their feet to get the best start. Candy was on the line. After a five-second countdown blared through the loudspeakers, the furious footrace started. Parents chased behind as a blur of elbows, baskets and little feet that stormed a football filed-sized lawn at Mariners Church in Irvine the Saturday afternoon before Easter.

COSTA MESA - Tanager Park turned into a place for children to ride ponies, pet freshly sheared sheep and gather as many Tootsie Rolls and Starburst as possible Saturday morning, as Torelli Realty hosted its 25th annual Egg-Citement event. This year, Torelli arranged for a 9-year-old llama named Cuzco to join rabbits, turtles, goats and sheep in the petting zoo. Nadia Nessim works on the El Monte farm where Cuzco lives. Nessim said Cuzco was going to be slaughtered, but Ann Ammons purchased him for $190.

The sound of an Easter egg was more important than its colorful look at Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort on Wednesday morning. About 50 visually impaired pre-schoolers were at the beach to hunt down the eggs by listening for their electronic beeping. The fist-sized, colored plastic eggs chirped at regular intervals as students from the Blind Children's Learning Center in Santa Ana scoured the grass and playground. For decades, groups from the Telecom Pioneers volunteer network have built the eggs using small circuit board and telephone speakers.

Garden Grove resident Adriana Gonzales knew when her 2-year-old daughter Gaby found a plastic golden egg with a certificate for a new bicycle inside at an Easter egg hunt on Saturday at Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort that the prize should go to another child. “I think this is the best thing to do,” Gonzales said as Gaby played happily with her Easter egg haul on Saturday. “She can’t use it and there’s another kid who can probably have a really good time with it,” Gonzales said.
