Sunset Cliffs under Moonlight by Ed Roxburgh
A group of those Point Lomans and Ocean Beachers reconnected at a reunion sometime in the 21st century and began getting together for hikes around San Diego County. Here’s a couple of photos of old timers on the trail in Rancho Penasquitos Canyon.
Back in the sixties and seventies Ed’s cars were a source of humorous interest to us. When he wound up owning multiple cars (while living in an studio apartment) he was nick-named Two-car Eddie – or was it Three-car Eddie? Anyway, he had the habit of naming his cars, the one I remember being Honey Pie; as in the Beatles’ song. It was a cream or tan colored station wagon built in the late fifties or early sixties.
One of the first things I learned about Ed was that he liked to keep his windshield clean. I think he liked to have the clearest possible view of the world.
Sandro Botticelli was a favorite artist of Ed Roxburgh. Our friend, Bob Theodore, made a terrible pun on the name, “I bought a celli, but it didn’t work so I took it back.” But that was back in the sixties and laughs came easier to us, so forgive us all.
