Barbunny & Bevy a little beat after the Museum

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..
