Many people were at Laguna Beach and on the cliffs to the southeast late this morning, apparently commemorating or watching for the body of the young man who drowned Monday. Two people climbed the dune area behind the beach, “flushing” the Mute Swan from the lagoon. This huge, bright white bird with a long straight neck took two big circles out over the ocean, accompanied by an escort of gulls. It was totally unexpected and spectacular.
