THE SHORES "The Shores, of late, is teaching wisdom rather
than pleasure. Due to some rather hedonistic years in the
late 60's when everyone thought they owned the place, it
has slowed to a populated standstill. However, in reward
for the patient and faithful, some express tubes have
come down recently. THESE MIRACULOUS CREATURES THEN
PROCEEDED TO BUILD UP NINE POINTS OFF THE NORTHERN
SPEAKER POLE AND PEEL OFF MOST RHYTHMICALLY, EXCITING
BOTH LOCALS AND STRANGERS ALIKE, TO THE STOKING JOYS
OF THE PAST. (You'll recall the past as 6' to 8'
slight offshore spindrifters everyday including
holidays and leap years).
"Yes," DeeDee speaks "those winter waves were
second best only to pure sunshine and they do
grant decaying La Jolla a little of her lost
energy-for she is still beautiful even in
her declining years..."
But, alas, there were no lefts...
