Montville Town News

By Fran Gonzalez | May 30, 2014

My apologies for missing last week's column. My family and I went on a whirlwind adventure to Los Angeles California to visit and meet my brand spanking-new nephew Amir. Even his name, Amir Zayne Gonzalez sounds like a rockstar! I had forgotten how sweet babies smell, and how tiny their fingers and toes are, and how awesome it feels when they flash you a baby smile. We had a great time. One of the highlights, we visited Point Dume, in Malibu beach. The final scene from Planet of the Apes was filmed here; the part where Charlton Heston and Nova are riding on a beach and they discover Statue of Liberty buried in the sand. Beautiful!
