There is a display case full of treasures recovered from a few of the locally known shipwrecks that occurred in this area a long time ago. You see, the owners of this place are local dive instructors. A husband and wife team with over 30 years of experience diving together.
I am smitten with this pattern of transferware.
The notes included along with each treasure, no doubt add to my fascination with them. Before 1900, the town of Sorrento was part of present day Sullivan. Who knows, this soap dish may have been slated for delivery to the Hotel Sorrento.
And here is a stack of ironstone treasures that I have found in the area. Except all of mine were found above water.
Apparently there is an abandoned gold mine located there. But I will have to wait until July to find out more about this, when he is scheduled to give a lecture about it at our local historical society.
