"Pipes" by Thomas DeSoto

"Pipes" by Thomas DeSoto,... I grew up in Cardiff-by-the-Sea California as a boy and always wanted to paint a picture of my favorite surf spot called "Pipes" which was located on the south side of the San Eligo camp grounds, I would surf from sunrise to sunset everyday for many years admiring the many Garibaldi swimming around my feet and collecting sea shells in the dark as I made my way home. Today the water has become to polluted to surf in and the fish have all gone away. I used to sit on my surfboard for many hours and look at the bottom of the sea floor but today you can't even see your feet through this murky brown mess filled with bacteria and disease. What a shame. I can't begin to tell you how many Dolphins and Grey Whales that used to come right up to me while i was sitting there quietly on my surfboard waiting for a set to come in,... At that period of time this was completely normal,... Thomas DeSoto
