ZIHUATANEJO, Mexico – A replica of the Greek Parthenon stands decaying on a cliff above a Mexican Pacific resort. It was built as a vacation retreat by the late Arturo Durazo, “El Negro,” a notorious Mexico City police chief who got rich on official misdeeds during a heyday of corruption in the 1970s. Legend says he murdered a couple of house guests in the Parthenon’s lagoon-sized pool, now half filled with slimy, green water.

Traie Meangh is the name of an abandoned open-air swimming pool (tidal pool) constructed in 1899 between the ocean & the cliffs along the coast of the Isle of Man. When the tide would go down, the sun would heat the water and make an ideal swimming pool for children and adults. Countless happy memories were had there with the pool’s races, bathing beauty contests, and competitions. Traie Meanagh operated until 1990, surviving briefly near the end as a fish hatchery. 6/19/13 ☀CQ #abandoned
