Sea Ranch

Postby Slim and Gabby » Sun Dec 14, 2008 6:59 pm

I just came across this nice article on Sea Ranch, a fine place from my youth. We used to frequent nearby Salmon Creek Beach. I did actually stay in one of the original homes sometime in the late ‘80’s, but don’t remember just which one.

The famous "unit 9" condo:

and the esteemed architects-Charles Moore(seated), Richard Whittaker, Donlyn Lyndon, Willam Turnbull:

Apparently, there is a move to 'modernize' the lodge. Too bad. This place is/was purty darned swell.

The sad thing is that almost a fifth of Scotland's coastline is at risk of erosion, threatening property and infrastructure worth £400m, according to a large group of scientists who study coastlines back to the 1890's... sucks that the place will eventually be gone. In the meantime, I bet shifting ground is probably causing a lot of problems.
