We are saddened by the sudden, tragic loss of MCAS Tustin Hangar 1. We have honored these beautiful wooden structures for decades in our artwork including twice lighting them up like Paris cathedrals in 1993 from dusk til dawn as a tribute to these magnificent structures as art and to honor the men and women that served there.
The ocean's edge is a magical place and every beach town has its own special and unique feel. Seventy-five years ago, San Clemente was established on low mustard and sagebrush-covered rolling hills and meadows on cliffs above the Pacific Ocean.
Founder Ole Hanson's aesthetic spirit was a "Spanish Village by the Sea" with signature red tile roofed, whitewashed adobe structures and the world's best climate. The residences were primarily vacation homes and most swimming was done in the Ole Hanson Beach Club's pool. The word "surfing" wasn't in the dictionary and all along San Clemente's beautifully articulated coast were distinct beaches that seemed separate from the rest of the world.
