Coral Castle

I have visitors! And when visitors come, I go see the sites in Florida. To be specific, my mom and her sister are here!! Charlotte turned 9 months old this past Thursday and she's thrilled to have grandma and great auntie to play with. Yesterday we visited the Coral Castle in Homestead, FL. In the 1950's a man built an entire castle out of coral - by himself!!! He built it for a girlfriend who he had lost and never gotten over.

This is the only photo I got of the castle garden, my camera batteries died.

Cool lizard! We chased him up and down the walls and my tall husband took the photo at the top of the wall.

Florida flower.

Awesome succulent.

Starbucks in an old gas station.

My sister's husband was stationed in Homestead (prior to the hurricane) but we never got down there. Now I want to go see the castle!

I empathize with the camera batteries story. Last February I took a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon (the first, and probably last, time I'll ever see it) and my batteries died before I could take the first picture.

I love how visitor remind you of all the cool stuff you live near.

Sounds like a nice visit.
