So we headed over to the Ca D'Zan via electric shuttle.

Bev took these by the Ca D'Zan's entrance






Bunny by the multicolored window backdrop



See, THOSE are chandeliers



And a birdcage



Wacky Mrs Ringling loved green (and had these painted)



I've been told I look crazyeyed in this picture. I dont doubt it. Sleep deprivation is a hell of a drug.
I like the multicolored window panes though.



Ah yes, the SILVER ALLOY sink.



John Ringling's bar..



And that ceiling.. it's not even wood (!)



Now THIS is a door.



BarBunny and Bevy waiting for the tour to start



GREEN everywhere.



Old school thermostat



The devil is in the detail



Eclectic is thy name.



The ceiling was decorated with dancers of the world.



It's all about the chairs..



And the LIGHTS









The lights were unique in every room, most were noteworthy









Ceiling detail



The view from the first floor on up



Air vents at ground level



For when you need the help to come running.. throw a switch and a buzzer.



Wood detail



The library was full of book collections bought by the foot =(



John's office:



The master bedroom



The view from the 2nd floor looking down.









The back of the Ca D'Zan is on the waterfront.





The view from outside (Ca D'Zan)



Bevy & [JC]2.



Take a careful look at the bird of prey in the middle of the branches.








That thing was HUGE, the tree was gigantic and my zoom isnt that good.



One HUGE Banyan tree



Ahh the ocean..



[JC]2 "It was THIS big!"



BarbBunny: "Like throwing a hotdog down a hallway!"



The fauna was beautiful as well





The view from the museum to the water..
