Ritchie’s Pool – (attempted) photo a day for 2012

Here’s a couple shots from a pool from the good ol’ town of Dana Point. The story behind it was the kids parents left on a trip and never came back leaving the ultimate party pad.

Funny how the yard was full of trash, piles of cans, etc, but the pool was always clean and ready. Slab coping, but set back enought to grind. Here’s to a day with no rain and empty pools!

CAPITOLA — The Capitola City Council agreed Tuesday night to explore a 9,000-square-foot skatepark design for Monterey Park.

“We should abandon the 4,000 (square foot size) it’s a natural at 9,000,” said Councilman Michael Termini. “It will get kids out of the Nob Hill parking lot.”

Parents Tory DelFavero and Emily Martin contended that the larger skatepark would be safer for younger children.

DelFavero has three sons, ages 8, 6 and 3, who all skateboard at different levels.

“With the larger size, there’s room for kids who know how to skateboard and for kids to learn,” explained Terry Campion, who is sponsoring a skatepark fundraiser Saturday at his shop, Santa Cruz Boardroom, on 41st Avenue.
