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