Happy Birthday From the Cardiff Kook   The Cardiff Kook, as the surfing statue at the intersection of the coast road and Chesterfield is affectionately called, was dressed up today for a birthday.   Happy Birthday Avi, whoever you are.     Unfortunately the Kook's bathing suit seems to have slipped abit, so perhaps today was not the real birthday.   For those of you unfamiliar with this popular bit of SoCal (especially Cardiff by the Sea) history, the Cardiff Kook is regularly dressed in all kinds of finery year-round - for holidays, local events, and even more personal circumstances like birthdays. The Kook even celebrated the Royal Wedding some years ago!   The Cardiff Kook even has its own website where you can enjoy all the costumes the statue has endured, and read more about the po...
