Long way from the beach


I spotted this little display in front of an antique store along 7th Avenue.  The car, the board, and the bicycle would all fit in perfectly at Crystal Cove California.

I recognize the area from the Rainbow Rentals sign. I think Sweet Salvage is a new business since I left - almost two years ago now. Wow! My, how time flies - even when you're not having fun!

Crystal Cove looks fab, this display made me think of that old tv show with Sally Field called Gidget for some reason!! Tandem bike riding is fun.

Oh, my daughter would love to own that Volkswagon Beetle! It is definitely an eye-catching display here in Phoenix.

Gidget would definitely go for that ride! Oh, Moondoggy. ;-)

Sweet photo. I had a bug of that vintage. But I've never seen such a tandem bike...that's an oldie but goodie!

I can hear the Beach Boys now... love this shot!

Maybe they were looking for that ocean front property in Arizona that someone sold them.

Cute. I have friends with a tandem bicycle. When they ride past and wave, it is easy to know who is waving despite the helmets and the bicycling gear. No one else has one.

GREAT find and picture, Sharon. Memories of the 50's.

I miss the vintage shops along 7th.

Driving the PCH with the beetle would easier than with the bike.
Gecko is watching :-)
