This would have been an ICME but I had to go back and get details. This morning traffic on Foothill blew worse than usual so I opted to use Hillcrest to avoid it on the trip home. I am glad I did as I stumbled across this beauty in the 900 block of West Hillcrest.
Cool stuff maynard, pirate ship details and more pics after the jump.
The homeowner was out when I stopped by this afternoon. I found it this is a project of her son and a few of his friends. It’s a 40 foot long, 15 foot tall pirate ship. When complete it will have cannons and 2 tall masts along with the requisite sound effects and lighting. How cool is that?
I had to ask if they had entered it in the city decorating contest. They hadn’t and they have done BIG things every year for the fun of it to entertain the local kids not get an prizes or contest winning. I did ask what the city thought of it and she let me know that busy body neighbors complained it was a permanent structure so the the building department paid them a visit. Since it was temporary no permits were needed. The did inspect and verified it is safely constructed and can be dismantled with no safety problems. How cool is the Mom or what!?
Pics by me with the trusty che-ez. I’ll be back this weekend with a camera and tripod to catch it in all its glory when lit.
