A tradition for Labor Day weekend for us is camping on Hecla Island, The island was settled by Icelandic people many years ago. Fishing was the main industry, and even today, there are many fishing boats in the harbour, as well as a fish station. When the island became a Provincial park, most people were asked to sell their property to the government and move.
Some of the oldest buildings are very rustic, and many are rapidly becoming piles of rubble:

This white building is the old boarding house, restored on the outside, but sadly, the inside hasn't been completed
There are nautical touches everywhere:
More recently, those who wished to do so, could rebuild on the island. There are many new summer homes now, and they must conform to traditional styles.
