“In wilderness is the preservation of the world.”
– Henry David Thoreau
I spent this past week on Cannon Beach where the classic, Goonies was filmed. It brought back many memories from my childhood of imagination and saving the day as those children did in the film.
“Goonies never say die!”
It seemed like a very magical place. Quite serene and rather calm. Though I guess most things are at 6:30 am. I find that 5:45-7:00am is the time when the craziness of last night has calmed down and the craziness that is to be the coming day has not yet started. That’s the best time for me to think and start my day. Fewer interruptions and hardly any noise. Just the seagulls, me, and the crashing waves with the trusty mountains behind me.
Diana Nyad completed her historic swim today. 112 statute miles between Cuba and Florida. Swimming since Saturday morning…no shark cage or flippers. Cruise ships are making way for her. 64 years old and now just 2 miles until she reaches Florida from Cuba. A true lesson about never relinquishing your dream: She first attempted the historic swim at age 28. She is 64 today and has finally achieved her dream.
I don’t know which one is better looking: Rydge, or his red hot GTO. 🙂
Rydge has quite the passion for classic muscle cars.
He rebuilt this one himself…a little hobby he shares with his dad.
It looks and sounds great!
He definitely has the coolest ride at his high school!
Rydge is such a sweet, quiet guy. He runs cross country and will be a big, bad senior next year.
He was always had a sly adorable smirk, but his serious face knocked me over!
Rydge is so unassuming and has such a lovely attitude.
He was an absolute joy to work with and it was definitely a treat for me to have him show up with his car.
Any sort of memorabilia (sports equipment, pets, cars) that means something to you instantly makes the photos more personal.
However, a restored, red GTO is definitely at the top of my list as far as props go!
You wouldn’t think it to talk to him, but I see modeling in his future. 🙂
