1969 St. Tropez Summer

I was 17. My girlfriend was Janet Stetson. Our beach was Nantasket on the Hull Peninsula south of Boston. Barry and the Remains played at the Surf. Paragon Park’s roller coaster was constructed out of wood. The structure creaked ominously with the passage of each car. Nantasket was no St. Tropez. It was fun for teenagers in the 60s. Paragon Park disappeared in th 80s, te amusement park replaced by a phalanx of condos. The beach remains for the pleasure of the people and the memories of that era lives within the aging members of “My Generation’.
