Hello Tom! I'm looking closely at the faces here.. &...I want to know more! Our family spent our summers, camping on one of those southern Cal cliffs..for $2 per night.. In the early 60's.. I'd love to know exactly where this was.. But I'm guessing.. South of Carona del Mar..maybe more south of Laguna beach..
It might even be early Dana Point! Judging by the roads going in on the hillsides..& we're definenately in the mid 50’s to early 60's.. Too "tidy" though for 'real surfers' tho.. The guy's hair?..too short & neat.. And their 'suits' are not old or baggy enough to qualify! In fact, guys called their suits "baggies"! But still I love this shot.. Bringing back my youth..& the raw, familiar 'salt air' of 1950's California...L&F Dona Delfino Dugay
