Already been around longer than we expected. It won’t seem the same without it.

I first met the owner in 1971 at my parents' home in Illinois. He still introduces me as his sister.

I think that moving the location probably makes a ton of sense, especially if he can develop a place that is a viable destination for cruise visitors. With the end of both Hemingways and Royal Palms in sight, the options for them were becoming really, really limited. Public Beach is fine, but without some sort of facilities there it is only of limited interest to them. The Kimpton's/Dart's plans that I have heard of don't really allow for the more casual cruise visitor to have a place to have a "beach day".

Cruise visitors want a place that is basically a hotel without the rooms. They want beach, a pool, restaurant, bar, loungers, chairs, showers and toilets. If the owner can create that in a nice way then he will do very, very well.

I am very curious to see where on Barkers they are going to put that.

There are some interesting places lined up to be developed. I am totally amazed about the location of the new Hyatt property and even more so the development at Beach Bay. I am guessing that Beach Bay will have to be very resortish with pools etc., as the beach is not anything really special. Hopefully they will not be allowed to "fix" it to make it more human friendly and less marine life friendly :( Doing a beach clean-up there tomorrow morning so will have a chance to really see it :)

We looked at Beach Bay about 10 years ago when a developer was *pre-selling* condos there. We walked down to the beach.....just didn’t get it. And of course that project never got off the ground. I agree that if someone comes in & creates a *resort*, it will work. It’s not where I would want to be, but there’s a lid for every pot.
