 JoAnn began publishing her second book, The Marina Nobody Knows©, on this website. Progress has been delayed due to working on the Hughes events. Some earlier work can be seen with the bottom toolbar above (Marina del Rey, Venice and Playa del Rey in the 60s). Paintings, stories, newspaper articles and unpublished color photos of the period will continue to be added. This is a personal odyssey of the 60s.
