“One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach, all the damn vampires”
When Jaye said that Santa Cruz, the location where The Lost Boys was filmed, was on our route from San Francisco down to LA I possibly did a small yelp of excitement. It’s one of my favourite films and reminds me of my youth and the 80s. I still have a crush on Jason Patrick circa 1987. Stopping for a ridiculously cheesy selfie on the Boardwalk made my day.
The rest of the drive down the coast was stormy. The sun didn’t really come out until we hit LA. I kind of liked it though. We had the radio on an 80s and 90s music station. There might have been some singing along at the tops of our voices. Paul periodically swerved into various stopping places with very little notice, leaving us all feeling slightly queasy, but happy to be able to photograph some beautiful, stormy views.
