built between 1887 and 1892.

Awakening,
and
Venus in Fur.

Creatures Big and Small...
in Bronze
Bronze sculptor Paul Harder loves animals, reptiles, and fish and
he recreates them all in stunning bronze sculptures at his studio in
Deep Cove. You could go with a cougar, wolf, sea otter, or a bear,
or perhaps an English bulldog on a skateboard is more your style.
Functional pieces include coffee tables with giant octopus bases
(he sent three to a client in the U.K.), or how about a seahorse
dining table?

spray — and

Storm watching

November
to February
and getaway
packages offer
front-row seats
to the natural
theatrics.
