The perfect “UGLY FAT GIRLS BEACH” where we could be invisible while working on a tan.

June 14,1964, Sunday. Went to the beach with Pearl

Took my sister Donna, to her friend Teri Thompson’s house. Pearl and I went to some secluded beach where no one could see us, because we are so fat and ugly. We drove way down the Coast, there wasn’t a place to park, so we came back to Santa Monica. It was almost raining and we almost froze to death. We only stayed about an hour. I came home and laid outside for an hour. Daddy and I went bike ridding. I did exercises for an hour. I want to lose 10 lbs so much. Sure hope I lose weight in my legs.

There were no sexy Beach Bunnies or bitchen Surfers, to look good for.   We were invisible, working on our tan, even on a cold overcast June Gloom day.
