The House of Refuge

Friends and Fans, I need your participation. 

I don't normally ask you to participate, but this time I need your help. I need to narrow these down to just a few picks, and I can't do it without bias, so your selective eyes are required. Its really quite simple, click/tap on the photo to open it, if you like it, just click/tap on the little heart that appears on the photo when you hover on it. That will help me decide which to cull out.

This is my 'study' of the House of Refuge, in Stuart, Florida. This is one of my absolute favorite places to go on Florida's Atlantic coast. The rocky coastline is utterly dramatic, unlike anything else you will find along the sandy beaches of Florida. While visiting family over Christmas, we went every morning (and even one evening for star gazing) hoping to catch sunrise, but it was a stormy weekend to be there. Alas, it was still as beautiful as always. 
It was built in 1876 to help stranded and shipwrecked sailors. In 1915 it became a US Coast Guard Station, carrying on its life saving traditions. Today, it is the oldest surviving building in Martin County and is an active museum providing a look back to Hutchinson Island life dating back from 2000 BC.
