The S.S. Moonlight and its sister “ship” the S.S. Encinitas sit along a hillside above Third Street looking as if they've recently been pulled ashore for repair work.??
Downtown Encinitas is full of historical homes and buildings. One of these historical sites is the Bessie Love Compound. This historical home is actually made up of three homes; two front cottages and a larger two story home toward the back of the property. These were inhabited, according to some, by Bessie Love, a famous actress and dancer from the 1920's, and her chauffeur and her Russian wolfhound, Olaf.
At the peak of her fame in the Roaring '20s, Bessie Love was one of the hottest actress in Hollywood.
