Behind the tit gates was a 40's gas station.

It stood between Highway 1 and the Pacific Ocean
complete with house, water tower, and succulent
The one car garage was 
Peter's shop.

The former hot dog stand
 was Phoebe's studio.

In 1969 when Peter first moved in, 40' of back yard separated the house from the Pacific.
By 1982 the back yard
looked like this.
 The fishing was great 
and Peter didn't want to leave.

But by 1985 Phoebe wasn't finding the
 ocean view as romantic as it used to be.


They suspected they might have to move soon.

The Pacific is not always
The surf came up.


In the morning pieces of their former residence were scattered 
all the way to the lighthouse.
