Belleair, FL

Uh-oh, an employee of the Belleview Biltmore Hotel is coming to chase me out of the underground tunnels… again.  I know I’m not supposed to go down into the underbelly of the hotel unless escorted by authorized personnel, but I can’t help myself.  My imagination runs wild when I’m down here, and the temptation to experience this aspect of the fantastic hotel is so great that I’m drawn through the forbidden door every time I visit.  And I visit often.
