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.┬áSlab coping, but set back enought to grind. Here’s to a day with no rain and empty pools!


Many skated this pool from sun up to sun down, like an unofficial skatepark with zero rules. Driving past last weekend I couldn’t help but stare and see what was and hard to see what it is. I could feel the desire to roll out the generator and lights, open up a fresh road soda and take a warm up run. Many names came and went but Pala seemed to stick the most, the crow bowl, pal around, others simply went away. I wont regurgitate the history because if you know, you know, but it sure would be nice to take turns again in her.
