Improvements galore are in the works right now at Asilomar Conference Center. The signs indicate that the project will take two years. Right now the work is focused in the area surrounding the Phoebe A. Hearst Social Hall, Merrill Hall, Pirate’s Den and the Sea Galaxy buildings at the far south end of the center (next to Sunset Drive).
They are working in several places simultaneously, so progress is evident day by day. In fact, from morning to afternoon, progress was obvious.
These sidewalk forms will be filled in with some lovely light-dirt colored brick. I’m sorry I didn’t take a picture of a finished sidewalk. You can see some good pictures of the finished walkways on Del Thomas’s blog.
This stairway goes up the side of Pirate’s Den, a building that dates from the 1920s.
Let’s hope that this never changes! This is the view from my bedroom window in the Scripts building.
I’m hoping that when they have completed these outside upgrades they will turn to the sleeping rooms.
