"On the Rocks" Cliffside Lodge

1969 National Geographic Feature Picture

1969 National Geographic photo of 'On the Rocks'

Caption from page 359 of the National Geographic article:


'Bounty from a graveyard of ships - the Door of the Dead - lures adventurous scuba divers to the peninsula.

This new Chalet Lodge, 'On the Rocks', caters to the underwater explorers. Prize possession of owner Gene Shastal, left, and manager Bob Lapp is this half-ton windlass, believed to be from the schooner Fleetwing, which sank during a storm in 1888.

Kedge anchor leaning against the windlass is a 285-pound relic recovered from 40-foot depths near Plum Island.'
