the mess hall, maria island

The Mess Hall was an old brick relic from penitentiary days. It's walls oozed atmosphere; a fire in the corner told many tales and heated the room. Each day, a few artists would help out the cook for the trip (Tim); on this day they went all the way with the table setting. The food matched.

The fireplace is a story in itself - here is an image (click for larger view):
