Andy O Starring in “Stand By Me”
Was driving down the freeway in Oregon a couple years ago, on our way to spend the night in Astoria Oregon, where they filmed “The Goonies” and “Kindergarten Cop” and we passed a sign that said “Castle Rock Next Exit”.
My mind started racing and I thought “Castle Rock sounds familiar”. Just a couple more minutes and it dawned on me….Castle Rock is where “Stand By Me” was based.
We whipped in to have a look, and it’s like many other small towns you find out there…time just seems to have stopped. A few business still exist, the video store…the lawn mower shop….think I saw a beer store and of course, the barber shop.
