This pool is named Art’s Pool, after its owner Art, who passed away in 1975 after heart complications. Because of the heavy rains back during that last El Nino, the pool started lifting up out of the ground. It raised primarily in the deep end. The shallow is still flush and mostly level with the deck.
Amazingly, the pool is still rideable, probably because of the vibes and energy of Art. His nephew, Isacc Moraza, seen sitting in the background in a few of the photographs, now regulates the comings and goings of those who want to try it out. Shane Allen took me there back in early December 2013… It was a really fun day. – William Sharp
