California: The Golden State

California: The Golden State | Sycamore

Hello there! My parents are holding down the fort while Ingrid, Kirk, and I are off visiting family in sunny Southern California. I've been looking forward to lounging on the beach with our family for months!

This film still is from the original Gidget. I love that movie. Sandra Dee's character lived my teenage dream. Seriously, I would have loved to be a teenage surfer in 50's/60's era California. Do you ever think about things like that? Alternative eras and scenes you'd like to experience?
