Boathouse Reflection (2004)

Built in 1887, the Coronado Boathouse was sort of a prototype effort for the architect and construction crew of the Hotel Del Coronado. It has the same distinctive red gabled roof, but it’s a square pyramid rather than the hotel’s octagonal, nearly conical cupola. It was originally at the end of a dock on the Glorietta Bay marina across from the hotel, and served guests who sailed their yachts to Coronado. It was moved to its current location (on stilts) in 1968. Today the Boathouse is a restaurant.

In this picture the boathouse reflects in the adjacent marina on a quiet morning. I’ve righted the reflection by flipping and reversing it.
