Once upon a time, this was my favourite song and I memorised it as best a preschooler could. At that young age, even though I didn’t get all the words right, I knew that the Boys were name-dropping various surf spots on the southern California coast. Names like “Redondo Beach” and “San Onofre” were exotic, faraway places that might as well have been Kathmandu or Casablanca to an awkward redheaded child living in what was still mostly rural Georgia.
A quarter-century later, I listen to these tunes when they come on and I smile as I’m reminded of those carefree times in my early youth, but even more because those exotic, faraway surf spots are now just down the street.
Neptune’s Lagoon: hourly rentals for private hot tubs and saunas. Conveniently located next to the Guadalajara Meat Market at the corner of Gaymont and Ball. You can’t make this shit up!
Only in Orange County can you drive along the freeway and get cut off by Cinderella.
