I was sent this the other day, and even if it is a bit before Mac Media, it is a classic of what La Jolla was in the late 1940s and set the foundation for the craziness and bizarre times of the 1960s and 70s.
Many will recognize the dads and moms of their friends and people they past forgotten about. No doubt this will spark some fond memories of the way La Jolla was back then.
Classic photos of La Jolla High School being built, La Jolla Cove, a few shots of Gunnery Training at Bird Rock (rare photo) Ocean Beach pier, Pacific Beach’s dirt streets, WindanSea and some of the luaus that later become Mac Meda Conventions, summer at the beach, lifeguards, the Plunge, La Jolla High football team and cheerleaders, football team and the few buildings La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club had, with no homes in the background.

Brian Munoz probably summarized it best; after getting a few “to-go orders” for a beer run, he went to the Liquor Box, filled his truck with cases, and when he started pulling out of the parking lot heading down Nautilus St - that’s when he slammed on his brakes. He suddenly had become the caboose of a freight train of police cars heading to WindanSea Beach.
It was known fact in La Jolla, any whisper or rumor of a Mac Meda party the cops, press, and school authorities took it seriously, or in this day of age, “A Terrorist Attack,” and became anal about the carnage of drinking, destruction, and sex that a Mac Meda Convention would generate. In this particular case, WindanSea Beach was going to be the targeted area and this time, the departments heads of police were determine to break up the outlaw group once and for all.

Here is how the story goes. Huge Mac Meda Convention at WindanSea. Cops like always were waiting out of sight, usually lined up like a fright train somewhere in Bird Rock or at the top of Nautilus St; glued to their radios, tapping fingers on the dashboard, just waiting to bust underage drinkers.
And the wishful wish of finally put the end to the La Jolla outlaw drinking group that had been terrorizing the so-called respected citizens of La Jolla for the last 5-6 years. Oh my … such bad boys and girls of the beach life.

In the Florida Keys, each night around two hours before sunset masses of people flock to the water’s edge to experience a soul-soothing, gorgeous, spiritual happening to play homage to the sun as it sank into the Gulf of Mexico. Vendors set up little trinkets shops and performing artists like jugglers, animal acts, high-wire artists, acrobats, and fire-eaters all began working for tips. The worshiping finally ends with the mesmerizing ohs and aws of the circus event when the Green Flash concluded.
Okay … thank God, this did not filter to WindanSea.
