Pelican Inn

The two ghosts who haunt this inn are of the canine kind. An elderly caretaker here once owned two Boston terriers, and legend has it that one of them swam out in the surf to save a little boy’s life. The dog soon passed away, and the other dog died of loneliness. Both dogs have been seen and heard on the beach when the sun goes down.
