An article about the Storybook House on Hypoluxo Island that appeared in the December issue misstated the date that the first bridge to the island was built. The first wooden bridge was constructed in 1925.
In a photo appearing with the same story, a caption indicated a young girl standing in front of the Storybook House was the owner’s daughter. This was incorrect. The young girl in the photograph is unknown.
