"I Smell Burning"

I was a kid, sleeping in a tot cot outside my parents' room, our first night at this grand and imposing hotel. I awoke in the night, and called out sleepily: "Mommy, I smell burning". Trusting my sense of smell (that was the best part!), they collected my sister and me and scrammed the heck out of there; our safe little family had a long drive home in the dark.

Two things

1. Here's a photo of the fire, and some more background on the resort.
2. And a menu for dinner at the hotel from 1892.

Stunning!

What an amazing piece of architecture. I can only imagine how fantastic a nice long stay would be.
