Vacationers carved their names and the dates they stayed on pieces of wood which they nailed around the front window as a record of their visit.

    Oh I LOVE this kind of stuff … what a shame that it was abandoned … that second photo especially says volumes. And that old stove … !!!!!! So nice that you documented this, and the title is perfect! : )

      Thanks – while I was there I ran into a couple who said they’d stayed at the resort many years ago and had come back to wander around and reminisce. Bittersweet for them, I’d guess.
