My beach town? Corona del Mar, California (which means Crown of the Sea), a small coastal village between Newport Beach and Laguna Beach. Why do I love it? The laid back, small town beach feel; it’s gorgeous; I can walk or ride my bike anywhere and everywhere; and of course, the crazy dolphin topiaries at the main intersection (which get decorated for every holiday). My favorite spots? Little Corona beach, China Cove, Zinc Cafe, and the farmers market on Saturday mornings.
Wish you were here!
As promised a few posts ago, we’re picking up where we left off in the Sports Illustrated Vault. We left you in 1980 with Christie Brinkley in the Seychelles and pick back up in 1981 with another great Christie cover. Check out 1981 through 2001 and tell us which suits you think are hits and which ones are misses.
Clockwise from top left: Christie Brinkley in Florida, 1981; Elle MacPherson in Thailand, 1982; Carole Alt in Kenya, 1988; Elsa Benitez, 2001; Heidi Klum, 1998; Tyra Banks, 1997.
