EDITOR’S NOTEBOOK:

I love the above photo of Ocean Beach , taken on the Fourth of July, just before the 17-minutes-long fireworks spectacular burst into the air, launched from boats anchored off the pier. Everyone seemed to be behaving themselves and the weather was perfect. It was a magical night.

The summer fun continues at 6:30 p.m. Friday, July 19 with the first Point Loma Community Park concert of the season, when Band Overboard will bring smooth “yacht rock” favorites to 1049 Catalina Blvd. (Find the rest of the schedule on page 12.) Don’t forget to pack a picnic and blanket. See you there!
