From the gazebo at the top of the hill beyond the cemetery the sun is trapped behind morning clouds and, for a moment, it appeared the day would remain overcast and gray.
After 150 years of visits by artists, there are no original shots on Star Island, it seems. But here is one of the enduring visual cliches -- rocking chairs lined on the porch of the hotel for the arrival of the morning guests.
It's after 5:30 a.m here and still not a single one of the 200 conference visitors is up on this Wednesday morning.
When John Poore's $350,000 hotel burned right after it was built in the 1870s, a number of other buildings were pulled together to recreate the
Oceanic as it exists today. Guests stay in small unadorned room in a series of houses, most share bathrooms, eat communally and look forward
to Shower Day twice a week. Little has changed and the rugged 19th century charm remains.
