In memory of the pepper
The most famous pepper in Laguna Beach has been sawed down.
If there was anything besides people that was glorious about our childhood and adolescence in Fullerton, it was the trees. Orange trees, jacaranda, peppers, oak, any kind you loved.
But trees grow old, too, and can endanger people and structures. I’m sorry to see this one go, and remember it from countless visits to Laguna. It was part of the scenery, and part of the spirit of Orange County.
