Scavenger Hunting in the Harbor

On Monday, Gypsy and I went out for a walk in Pillar Point Harbor to find a few more items for the 2012 Summertime Photo Scavenger Hunt.  I knew we would be able to find a pier, and I took this photograph of Romeo's Pier:
I was also hoping to be able to find a labyrinth.  I say hoping because there is often a labyrinth on a hill overlooking the harbor.  But sometimes it gets dismantled.  As I walked around the corner, I saw this:
And when I walked up the hill, I was able to get a photograph of the entire labyrinth:
It's not a big labyrinth, but it's my labyrinth. And that's two more items off the list for me.  Only five left to go: library; roadside stand; tree swing; historical marker; and portrait with a national symbol. What's left on your list?

P.S. I wanted to give a shout-out to Kim who played along even without a blog. Her terrific photos can be found at this link. I especially love her pier, her library and her bonus photo. Check it out!

Love that maze/labyrinth and well done to Kim lovely photos.
Am I missing something as some people have heart shaped stones but I can't find that on the list at the side?
