Summer 69 St Tropez Paradise

Eric Bedos posted this painting.

1969 St. Tropez Summer, but it’s actually Nantasket Beach, our St. Tropez 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.

Fun, terror, love.

Sadly Paragon Park disappeared in the 80s to be 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’.
