I like the bolder colors of the logo and of the site.
I like the seaside logo: it is modern and shows sea and sun. IT would 
also work well if it needed to be B&W or grayscale at some point.

I wouldn't make the text black, though. A little to bold for the rest of 
the colors.

The Star could be different. Don't know how... but it's a different 
design style from the seaside logo. Then again, if it's kept the 
viewer's focus would bounce back and forth between the star and the 
seaside logo. If removed it could balance off the heaviness of the left. 
If kept, links on the left could be moved to another place.

I like the bkg gradients. How is that done in seaside?
