This is one of those places where I know generally where it is, but I have forgotten the specific location because I didn’t make any notes as to where I was when I made these images on slide film.

It is July 1979 and I’m in northern California somewhere south of San Francisco and probably near San Jose.

I had rented and driven to a park along the Pacific Coast. Alas, I don’t remember which one.

As I look at this series of images I’m reminded of the song California Sun by the Rivieras. It has been covered by numerous performers.

These images evoke in my mind a day at the beach whiling away the time in a secluded cove sitting on the sand. But there must be countless numbers of those along the long California coast line.

I don’t remember spending much time here and were it not for these photographs I might not remember being here at all.
