Not far from the port on Block Island can be found the ruins of the Ocean View Hotel, destroyed by fire in 1966.  Sections of the foundation and some rubble are all that remains of it today.  The area also had quite a bit of poison ivy, so needless to say, I had to tread very carefully.

Part of the area has been maintained by schoolkids and is being used as a garden.  We didn’t see anything growing when we were there though.

The above bluff is right by the hotel site.  A small plaque on the ground tells of a couple being married on this spot.
