    a quiet place right on the beach

    by

    this hotel was a timeshare exchange for me but is open to others as well. i had a studio on the eighth floor with a small terrace and a lovely view of the swimming pool area and the ocean. there are two couches in the main living area; the wall behind one of them hides a double murphy bed (folds down from the wall). there are a clock/radio and a TV with remote control (issued at the desk). the air conditioning works very well. there is a fair amount of closet space.

    the kitchen has a microwave, coffeemaker, blender, and toaster, plus refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, and oven. dishes, glasses, silverware, and pots, plus paper towels and dishwasher powder, are supplied. there is a small dining table with four chairs. mirrors on various walls and closet doors make the space seem larger. in this studio, the total space was fine for one person and would be manageable for two, but would be crowded for three or more.

    the hotel provides four large bath towels, four large hand towels, four washcloths, and four large beach towels. there is soap, but NO SHAMPOO. the bathroom has lots of hot water.

    unfortunately, there is only one elevator in the main building, where i was. the hotel has other wings, but i did not explore them.

    between the hotel and the ocean are a pool and a whirlpool as well as tables and chairs and a small outside snack bar (with wine, beer, and mixed drinks), open till at least 10 pm, maybe later. there is an indoor bar/restaurant overlooking the beach.

    beyond the pool area there are beach chairs with umbrellas, evidently for rent. there were also chairs out right on the beach, tho, that seemed to be free for anyone's use.

    the hotel staff are very friendly and responsive.

    Unique Quality: this was a very pleasant week for me. in the evenings, i sat on a beach chair right where the waves came in and enjoyed the breeze.

    this seems to be a very family-friendly hotel, but it was not noisy.

    between roughly march and june, the sea turtles come up on the beach at night to lay their eggs. known nesting areas are roped off, and state law provides very strict penalties for disturbing them. inside lights are supposed to be turned off if they can be seen thru windows (but the rooms have blinds to shield them), because the lights can disorient both the mothers and the hatchlings. it is magical to see the nesting area during the day -- the marks in the sand made by the mother turtles look like a single tractor tire track. everyone was very respectful of the turtle nesting areas, as far as i could tell.

    i walked along the beach on a couple of afternoons. it is much cooler by the ocean than at the swimming pool area because of the breeze over the waves. the sand is very hot, tho, so bring expendable sandals or beach shoes!

    Directions: go north on I-95 from fort lauderdale, exit at atlantic BOULEVARD (not avenue) east. go to A1A (ocean blvd), turn left/north. the hotel is on the right at northeast 14th street, which actually runs into the hotel parking lot

Cove Point 1828 - Still an Active Lighthouse

by grandmaR

Cove Point is still an active lighthouse in Lusby near Calvert Cliffs at the narrowest part of the Chesapeake Bay. In addition to Calvert Cliffs, where there is a state park and fossiling possibilities, you can see a nuclear power plant from the bay at this point and the LNG platform to the north (on the right of the photograph). The two insets are different views of the lighthouse as we sailed past in one of my first attempts at digital photography.

The Cove Point, MD Lighthouse was built in 1828 and still retains the original caisson with octagonal brick dwelling / light tower. It is 51 feet tall and was build by John Donohoo, the same person who built the Concord Point light (which is an earlier light, which I have not yet seen). It cost less to build than Congress budgeted for it.

Originally 11 lamps were used, each with a 18" reflector. These were replaced in 1855 with a fifth order Fresnel lens, then again in 1899 with a fourth order lens. While the light is now electrified, the old winding mechanism and counterweights are still in working order. Like other land based lights on the Bay, the keepers dwelling began as a simple single story home and was later enlarged (1883) by the addition of a second story. Several fog bell towers have also graced the site over the years.

The lighthouse was deeded to the Calvert Maritime Museum in 2000 and there are shuttle buses twice a day on weekends and Holidays, May and September, and daily June, July and August. The lighthouse is closed October through May.

Admission is free with payment of admission to the Museum (normal adult admission is $7.00) . Cove Pt. Access is only available by shuttle bus from the Museum in Solomons. You can NOT drive directly to the lighthouse.

WARNING: If there are not enough volunteers working at the museum, the the shuttle bus does not run, regardless of the schedule. I still have not visited this lighthouse by land.

(2) the hotel's website says that they are refurbished and open since hurricane damage, but i'm wondering if anyone has actually been in any of the units recently and how they look.

thanks for any info.
