Remember the Fertelli’s restaurant where the entire movie supposedly happened?
Well, brace yourselves for this one: the restaurant didn’t exist. It’s just a bunch of computer magic.
This, of course, doesn’t stop the millions of Goonies fans from coming anyways. The only things you’ll find on this empty lawn now are church youth groups having lunch
My sister and I got over the restaurant shenanigans once we realized what was behind us.
Twenty-five years ago, Mikey stood in this very spot with the key to One Eyed Willy.
Well, I didn’t have a key, so I made my own.
Dora had a go at it
but her key to One Eyed Willy sucked
Just like the Goonies, we headed down to the beach to see the pirate ship
My memory may be off, but I don’t recall there being a well-groomed path down to that beach in the Goonies
The beach itself looked different too. Remember all those rocks?
In the movie, they allowed big ass trucks on the beach.
Not now. Only these stupid buggies
Since the pirate ship never showed up, we did other fun beachy stuff.
Dora tried to build a sand castle
but she sucked at it. My sister convinced her being buried is waaaay more fun.
My sister doesn’t much like Dora.
And now, Dora doesn’t much like my sister.
Plus, she’s jealous of how close my sis and I are.
It didn’t take long for us to realize the One Eyed Willy’s rock looks just like a boob!
You don’t have to be a Goonie to have adventures on the Oregon coast.
And you don’t have to be a teenage boy to think like one.
