The opening of the first Tommy Bahama Home Store, a division of the lifestyle brand of the same name, was worth the wait, according to a Newport Beach interior designer. Dawn Rosenmayr's hunt to find an island-themed ceiling fan for a client brought her to the furniture and home décor store at Fashion Island days after its soft opening earlier this month. "The Tommy Bahama furniture collection is perfect for someone who wants to decorate their home with a tropical touch," said Rosenmayr, who has run Rosenmayr Interiors for about 10 years.

As summer winds down and everyone gets back to the kind of "serious" work we do here in Newport Beach, it is important to make time to check in on old family, old friends and old favorites. It is also downright vital to sneak in one last vacation if you can. I visited my old friend Tommy Bahama down at Tommy Bahama's Tropical Cafe and Emporium in Corona del Mar in an attempt to do all of the above at once. And just like with family and friends, some things changed for better, some stayed the same, some got more expensive and some just didn't show up. Funny, just like with friends and family, with the exception of a wacky aunt or two, nothing got cheaper either.

Float designer Sheila Barger came to Costa Mesa to visit her brother in late August of 2005, intending to stay only a week. But two days into her vacation, Hurricane Katrina devastated her hometown of New Orleans and she decided to make Costa Mesa her permanent address. Along with her home, Barger lost her entire portfolio and all her references. But with the help of Ralph Rodheim, chairman of this year's Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade, Barger is back in business and has designed and crafted a 52-foot-tall sailfish to adorn the official Tommy Bahama boat in the parade.

One boat, two boats. Red boat, blue boat. The 99th Annual Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade, sponsored by the Commodores Club of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce, kicked off last night from Collins Island. On the Balboa Island Bridge, people were lined up to watch the boats come into the channel before turning and heading out. Boats of all shapes and sizes floated past crowds of spectators, waving and cheering as they passed by. The Harbor Patrol heads the fleet, followed by the lead boat, a 69-foot McKinna yacht, featuring a large inflatable snowman in back, and an announcer signaling the start of the parade and welcoming visitors.

Perhaps Jim Madden's first words as his Stark Raving Mad III finished the 60th Newport Beach to Ensenada Race Saturday indicated that he was looking on the bright side. "We're alive and we made it," Madden of Newport Beach said to a press boat after he followed Magnitude 80, the boat sailed by Doug Baker. Baker's Mag 80 finished first, 12 and a half minutes ahead of Stark Raving Mad III, in the elapsed time of 21 hours, 4 minutes, 23 seconds. For a short time, Madden still had some sort of satisfaction, as his handicap time was 75 minutes better than Baker's.
