The above pictures are from the House of Refuge. Initially, 10 were built along the FL coast. The idea was that they would be refuges for sailors whose ships were lost at sea or who ran aground. Since settlements were few and far between, the houses of refuge offered them a place to eat, sleep, and recuperate. Each house had exactly the same layout, and all had a keeper. Only the Gilbert's Bar one has survived. In fact, this one was used to scout out German Uboats during WWII. We spent some time exploring the house and property (which was set up for a wedding later that night-gorgeous!).
The rest of the weekend was spent swimming by day and watching TV by late afternoon/evening. It rained pretty strongly each afternoon, so that ended the pool aspirations, although they did get to swim one night after the rain stopped and the sun had set.
