About The Living Room

The Living Room, left, at the curve where North Beach Rd. turns east. East Sound, the body of water, is 3 blocks down the slight hill (loved by skateboarders). The shot is taken from the driveway of the Victory Hill B&B.
In the right photo, the garden is valiantly making progress through its second summer's planting. Now in its forth year, the yards bloom through the seasons. The venue seats about 80 or so, with fold up armchairs and plenty of wall space for art exhibits.
This lovely space used to be the cursed spot of Eastsound. The rundown building was host to dozens of doomed businesses over the years. Robin Woodward hounded the owner for months. "Sell to me PLEEEZE!!" Once she got the property, she lovingly restored it. Susan and David signed a lease for the gallery space for three years, now Robin and others are carrying on.
Thanks Robin! Here's her picture.
