Untold Story #18: Ringling Estate

On our second day in Florida, we visited the Ringling Estate in Sarasota, and my greatest regret is that I didn't photograph the outsides of the buildings, as the photos I took don't prove the stateliness of the place. Cade and Sam visited the Museum of Art; the rest of us opted to tour the Circus Museum and (some of the) Bayfront Gardens only.

Banyan trees. I was reading, today, that oral history indicates that
Thomas Edison gifted thirteen banyans to John Ringling in the 1920's.

The Ringling Estate is way more sophisticated than I'd expected. I'm glad we visited and would like to return when my little ones are older.
