constructed in 1888.




The beach resort has Victorian







Famous guests include Thomas EdisonMarilyn Monroe, and Oprah Winfrey.





Some Like It HotMy Blue
Heaven, & others were

building is an oft oft-sited
landmark.








The first electric lit Christmas
Tree was debuted to the public
in 1904.









The landscaping at the hotel
is beautiful.






The exotic Bird of Paradise










Eric & I stroll along the resort's
sidewalk & look out to the
beach & the sea beyond.

Walking northwest from the

sand dunes.










These sand dunes were not
formed naturally.








This is the results of his two year
project (1988 - 1990).

of the peninsula is part of the
