We moved to Capistrano Beach in 1995 and in that same year a movie came out – Man of the House – with Chevy Chase, Farrah Fawcett and Jonathan Taylor Thomas.
Farrah Fawcett is a single mom dating Chevy Chase and her son, Jonathan Taylor Thomas isn’t too fond of this new man coming into his home. A small part of the movie is where Mom and Son gather “Beach Treasures” and add them to a net on their wall. I loved the idea and we hung up a net on an outside wall in our front patio. When we found fun things at the beach we added them to the net. After a storm we would go down and find some great things! I just found a surfboard fin this month and have just added some nice pieces of drift wood to frame out net!
There are things in the net we have bought … shells, a fishing man, mermaid thing … but it’s all fun and looks cute!
