Seaside has become a hugely popular destination since its early days when there were only a few modest cottages lined along a couple of sandy roads. Since gaining international recognition,
Seaside has experienced a meteoric rise in visitors, especially during the summer months. With new shops, merchandise, activities and menu items, Seaside is working to make your summer even more special.
La Vie Est Belle Summer Collection
Wendy Mignot’s fine pearl and leather jewelry collection is a world-renowned brand defining the Gypset Style. You may think the creator of one of the hottest jewelry lines would hail from Los Angeles or New York, but jewelry designer Wendy Mignot, originator of Tahitian and Fresh Water Pearl and Leather Jewelry collection, ushers in her unique collection from Seaside.
Mignot’s trademark Fine Pearls and Leather Jewelry collection includes the finest Tahitian, South Sea and freshwater cultured pearls, as well as sea glass, shells, stones and an exclusive presentation of ancient and shipwreck coins on hand-rolled leather, tied with precision and care.
This summer, Mignot features her new limited edition summer collection called “The Coastline Collection,” made with a mix of pearls and sea glass.

Hatha Yoga at the Seaside Amphitheater
Hatha yoga is a popular exercise choice for a healthy mind-body connection. Most forms of yoga in the West can be classified as Hatha Yoga. Hatha practices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.
Certified yoga instructors Craig and Nancy McLaughlin have taught yoga in Seaside for more than 20 years, and have studied in the U.S. with many senior level teachers. “When someone comes to our classes, we are going to help them understand the poses on a very deep level,” Craig McLaughlin says. “Alignment and steadiness is the key to the asanas (yoga poses). We address the discomfort of the body, finding the strengthening and lengthening needed to maintain a body in comfort.”
The yoga duo teaches summer yoga classes on the Seaside Amphitheater stage through Labor Day. The classes are offered Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-9:15 a.m. with a cost of $20 for the drop in rate. Regulars can take five classes for $75. Yoga mats and props are available on site. Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted. For more information call (850) 960-7998.
