    BEACH TIME: When you see the name "Dr. Beach: America's Foremost Beach Expert" you can be forgiven for having a few questions. Like one: Does Dr. Beach have laminated business cards, so they don't get all wet and rippy? And two: What schools do we need to go to to receive our doctorate in beachology? Questions. But we're not here today to ask, but to share. Dr. Beach's picks for the Top Ten Beaches of 2011 were just released, and one Golden State spot made the list.

    CORONADO BEACH: Yep, the San Diego spot is the only California beach. But consider that it does occupy spot number two. And consider that a whole mess of other rankings are taken up by Florida and Hawaii. So we're cool. We will pitch to the good doctor that he hit Zuma and Carmel in 2012, but then we're home-stage boosters is the thing. And cheers, Coronado. We totally agree you deserve a spot.
