This image came from another magazine ad, this time for a 4x4 truck. The bright and shiny new truck was perched atop a hill, overlooking a clear cut. The devastation shown by a clear cut and the bright, shiny new 4 x 4 truck spoke to me. When a friend, ( yes, you guessed it .. Amanda ) saw the image for the first time, the comment was “ my, what a lovely beach ! The name stuck.
