Today we car pooled it out to Robert Moses State Park
Back in the mid- '80s, I spent 3 summers working on the beach. I was a chair boy. As people walked under the boardwalk they told me how many chairs and umbrellas they wanted. I hauled them out to the beach, took a paint brush out of my back pocket and brushed the sand off and they gave me a few dollars. I worked every nice day all summer long. Seven nice days in a row would net me $1,000. $1,000 a week in 1985 cash money.
That was nice, but it has taken me a while to enjoy the beach again.
BTW, I worked at the long gone Atlantic Beach Estates. The Flamingo Kid was filmed on the same beach. but it was not like a Matt Damon movie. Not at all.
