I just read your article r.e. AppleTree in OB. Really hurts me that these brothers (I know and worked on their computers), have had to move to a month to month rental. Thought they owned property, guess not. Dealing with some money monger in LA who has no idea or care of what this market has to offer OB and as you said, many people having difficulty moving around depend on a local market. I’ve lived up and down the coast (mostly PB/OB) and though OB was last place that I thought would change as PB did. Really sorry about this and supposedly out 2 days before Thanksgiving? Some thanks! I plan going down and expressing my sorrow and disappointment. LA probably will tear down and build more condos or something. Money is the root of all evil!
I’ve been asked to watch the door at Bullfrogs, in PB at Billy Bones (went there 13 years), went up to the “crows nest” with the girls in charge while owner out on his schooner (my favorite sail boat), and took over writing checks/managing bar things while girls still sleeping. Point is I’m an old trusted, long haired hippie OBsion/PBlover well respected from the brothers of AppleTree. I know they own more properties there but really saddens me about this. It’s been a landmark, as you said, for 25 years.
