Coral Castle: Megaliths in Paradise

I am just home from a short trip to Miami and Homestead, Florida, where we visited the Coral Castle. The Coral Castle is the life work of Ed Leedskalnin, who worked secretly to build this monument to his lost love. The castle was made with limestone megalithic stones, the largest of which were bigger than those used to construct the Great Pyramid of Giza. Ed said that he had "discovered the secrets of the pyramids."

The crescent moon on the bottom right of the above photo is one of two crescents behind the moon pool pictured below.

Do you think I could resist the baby chair?

Tessa had to try is out.

Billy Idol's song "Sweet Sixteen" was inspired by the coral castle.

Plants find a home among the stones.

Thanks for looking at my pictures! Now I need to get back to work! I have much to do to get my holiday inventory ready and am preparing for Hallogreen this coming Saturday!
