We’d always end up at the Jib at Toes. It was a Hub where Surfers and Beach Bunnies hooked up and made dates.

August 17, 1964, Monday. Took Billee and Preston to the show

Lauri and I took my sister Donna and her friend Teri surfing, then drove to her beach … Station 2 at the Santa Monica Pier. I looked so ugly with my hair in rollers and no makeup. Tonight Sandy and Dianne Block and I took my little sister Billee and brother, Preston, to the show to see the Beatles Movie A Hard Day’s Night. It was really good. Sandy and Dianne just love the kids. After the show, we took the kids home and drove down to Toes. We saw Gary Fox working in a gas station and felt so sorry for him we took him to dinner at Tiny Nailor’s. He’s so sweet. We talked about all the bums (guy’s we’re mad at) at the beach. He told us that Doug is going to marry Ann. We went back to Toes and saw Eric Olson. I made a fool of myself at the Jib, trying to figure out who he was. Greg told me Rick likes me.

It was a beach I’d be seen at in rollers, but never at Toes in Play Del Rey.
