We lived in the San Fernando Valley, but at some point every month we headed to the beach. We bought a trailer and spent many weekends and vacations camping at the beach. When I was in grammar school one of our favorite spots was Hobson Park, located off Pacific Coast Highway in Ventura County. We then moved on to Carpenteria and eventually bought a mobilehome at Paradise Cove in Malibu. By this time I had reached my teenage years and spending weekends and most of the summer in Malibu was a dream come true!
I have to include a family photo taken at the Cove in 1964. I was 13-years old and loved surfing and surfers! Don't you love my mother's hat?
I'm pictured here with my parents, my brother Gerald and my baby sister Sandy. I loved the Cove and will be writing about it more in future posts, for now I leave you with this little glimpse into my past.
