E~I unit. $299,000 Three complaints We have been to Avalon four times this year and Two Harbors once, and have only three com- plaints: At Two Harbors, the service at the breakfast place (I think it's the only one in town) is not friendly at all. One or two employees were moderately helpful, but several were rude, and one was downright offensive. Need to upgrade the staff at that place. Also at Two Harbors: The reef on the way in there is very poorly marked, and better indicators are needed to show just how shal- low that reef is, which is right where boats want to go to get to the harbor (just past Bird Rock); we've heard people have dam- aged outdrives and keels there, not knowing that at times, there is less than 3 feet of clearance. Some buoys are needed to ring that reef, pronto. At Avalon, we went from drink- ing fountain to drinking fountain trying to find one that works. Ul- timately, after trying several that were broken, we found one near the pier that shoots water out a bit too far, and did not drain at all.
