OCEAN BEACH, CA. Thanks to OBSteven, we now have documented where OB’s fire pits are. There appears to be eight of them – see map.
Now is your chance to adopt a fire pit. Are you an individual, group, civic organization, store front, business, or church? Rush now to get yours. There’s only eight.
We have numbered them #1 through #8, starting with the most northern one as numero uno. Number eight is the most southern one – the one closest to the main Life Guard tower. Sign up now, fellow OBceans!
One of our vocal commenters, bodysurferbob, has proposed that people adopt them, just like groups and families adopt sections of the freeway. Get your name on the fire pit.
What the proposal is, is this: you or your group sign up to pledge to keep the fire pit cleaned up and maintained. Look at these photos – we can do a better job than the City, even.
Now, remember, we’re doing this the OB-way. Unofficial, without official sanction. Nobody has given us permission to do this – we’re just taking it on by ourselves. We also don’t want the City to take them out.
This is the OB-way. Just like OB had done in the past.
No one gave us permission to paint out the graffiti on the cliffs. No one gave us permission to clean up after the Marshmallow Fight last July. No one gave us permission to help that elderly gentleman in Point Loma with his house.
No one gave us permission to start the garden at Voltaire and Sunset Cliffs. No one gave us permission to install benches along Sunset Cliffs. No one gave us permission to halt the jetty back in the Summer of 1970. No one gave us permission to save Collier Park back in the early Seventies. No one gave us permission to prevent the porno theater going in at The Strand. No one gave us permission to boycott StarBucks.
This is the OB-Way.
So, sign up, pledge to maintain it, and we will keep your name on file, and inform the City.
