Pirate’s Cove before it was a nude beach 1965

1966-07-12-Pirates-coveNorman Coy, shared a story from his childhood after reading a previous post on Pirate’s Cove. During World War II fake gun emplacements were placed on the bluff to protect the Union Oil facility. Though the “guns” were only telephone poles, aimed at the never to arrive Japanese fleet, live men staffed the positions and when the emplacements were abandoned they left behind rations. The food had gone stale but the cigarettes still could still be smoked by enterprising locals exploring the hillside.
