the 'Twang this week...just a few hundred
yards from Nautilus and Neptune...where
Parkin skated. board shaped with pride

there are hopes for a skate park in La Jolla
these days...possibly next to the fire station
on Nautilus Street...the same street where,
as far as we can tell,
Windansea surfer Peter Parkin rode the first
skateboard in 1947. Simmons kept boards at
Parkin's place. If that street could talk...
TA puts his two cents
in on a park in LJ.
