Desolation Row

I snapped this picture of my favorite surfspot one cold gray afternoon. The afternoon had a rather unusual feel to it, as there are typically many people on the boards either execising, or checkin the waves. Here it was completely desolate-It's so strange to be so alone in an area typically over populated. Put in in mind of my favorite Dylan song....

Desolation Row-excerpt
Praise be to Nero's Neptune
The Titanic sails at dawn
And everybody's shouting
Which Side Are You On?"
And Ezra Pound and T. S. Eliot
Fighting in the captain's tower
While calypso singers laugh at them
And fishermen hold flowers
Between the windows of the sea
Where lovely mermaids flow
And nobody has to think too much
About Desolation Row
