Take Down the Stacks Now

As a kid form Paso Robles, we would come to the ocean at Morro Bay to play on the beach and have fish & chips, and sometimes even abalone & chips. We did not come to see the one tall smokestack, or even the incredible Rock. We came here to be at the ocean! If the Rock or the stacks were never here, we would all still be here for the beauty of the ocean.

Life is continuously changing. So let’s enjoy the stacks while they are here, knowing that someday they will be gone.
We can photograph or enjoy the painted images of the stacks for nostalgia. Nature or man will take them down eventually.
My vote is to take the down now! Clean up the hazardous industrial site, then we can dream of what to replace it with.
