Dad Drain III
This was just before this dad and his kids took off their shoes to get out on the drain (see those shots here Dad Drain, Dad Drain II).
This continues images from the ME Super tests (see here).

I am worried about the erosion of the drain edges, how much longer will this important monument survive the battering of the ocean?

It has noticeably changed in the 5 or 6 years that I have been photographing it. But eventually it will be worn down and the city engineers will deem it has to go. Or, since there is a new sewage and water disposal system imminent in this area, it is possible that the storm drain system will be revised and this part remade. I am not too worried yet, and I do have it well documented!
The sentient man with active brain provides nice contrast to the inanimate drain. I thought at first that he was rolling a cigarette , but looked more closely to see that he is texting. This is 2017, not 1977.
Hi Richard – texting is a strong possibility, there is a (probably lesser) likelihood he is looking at photos he just took of his kids.
