    Was that the main structure or a cabin?

      It was the golf cart shed, where the resort stores not only the golf carts, but all of the supplies for the swimming pool, tennis courts and other activities.

    Many thanks to all the crews for their quick work! This could have been disastrous — to the wonderful old lodge nearby and to the resort we’ve come to love over 25+ years, just for starters.
