    Ghouls, Ghosts, Trolls Experience

    A "troll", called "trulli" in Burton's "Anatomy of Melancholy", is a sort of earth-demon. The word "trull", a loose woman, grew from the same root; thus the "troll" was probably at first one of the pagan Hags or earth-priestesses.

    Norwegian folklore said "trolls" commonly sat under bridges, waiting to seize and eat those who crosses the bridge without making them offering. While the vicious Jungle Trolls of the numerous South Sea islands should be something cruel and surrounded by dark mysticism.

    See the streets lined with picket fences and wood villa-houses with porches and tin roofs ... All the villas are so different and yet all are family. All brick streets lead to beach pavilions, ceremonial gateways for the procession to the sea.

    Our Peaches & Cream Villa faces the East Ruskin Street, one minute from the Ruskin Place. Where you would like to sit down for a picnic and watch around to enjoy those perfectly beautiful cottages ...

    To all Seasiders the families say :
    "Thank you for choosing to stay in Seaside. We take pride in our community and enjoy sharing it with others ..."

    And so it be ...
