“In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars. At high tide in the afternoon I watched his guests diving from the tower of his raft, or taking the sun on the hot sand of his beach while his two motor-boats slit the waters of the Sound, drawing aquaplanes over cataracts of foam. On week-ends his Rolls-Royce became an omnibus, bearing parties to and from the city between nine in the morning and long past midnight, while his station wagon scampered like a brisk yellow bug to meet all trains. “

San Rafael - Condor Agate | ©Uwe Reier
Discovered in 1992 by the former Argentinean actor, Luis de los Santos, the Condor Agate comes from a difficult-to-reach 7,000-foot elevated plateau near San Rafael, in Mendoza Province, Argentina. The site can only be reached by horse back.
The agate’s bright reds and yellows are made even more vivid by their contrasting bands of cooler, more-subtle hues. This agate was named after the large Condor birds that were flying over Luis de los Santos during the trip that he discovered the agate.
Locality: San Rafael, Argentina.

I once posted some photos of my relatives at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Lake Geneva Hotel (1911-1970) in Wisconsin. The prairie style design featured a horizontal 360-foot long building with 90 rooms, terraces, and colorful art glass windows. The top photograph, from a 1967 issue of the Milwaukee Journal, shows the swimming pool that had been added next to the entrance. The rest of the photographs, taken by preservationist Richard Nickel, show the building right before demolition, including the large arched fireplace that was located in the lobby. Notice some of the alterations, including a sign for “The Golden Orchid” restaurant. A 1970s style high-rise condo building currently stands on the hotel’s former site at the lake and lagoon between Broad and Center Streets.
