Watery Wednesday - At the Ca da Zan - Ringling Mansion

Now I know it's still Tuesday, but for many who participate in Watery Wednesday it is already Wednesday in there part of the world. So I'm not early for them!

I can't help myself but take photos every time we visit John Ringling's mansion the Ca da Zan.

It has so much details and marble work that he had imported from all parts of the world.

Sitting right on Sarasota Bay, the view is so peaceful, on a hot day.

The iron lamps surround the front lanai.

It would be a great place to entertain. It is open to the public, and you can walk through the house inside with the price of an admission ticket to the John and Mabel Ringling Museum of Art.

Otherwise just stroll through Mable's Rose Garden and walk around the grounds and enjoy it outside for free!

This is included in this weeks Watery Wednesday check out all the other wonderful ...

...photos from around the world and around the country! Enjoy!!


  1. Nice series of shots. We're so fortunate to live so close to such a treasure. When I was there last week, the sky was washed out. I really didn't care too much though...it's so relaxing just strolling the grounds.

  2. Looks like a great place to take shots. Thanks for sharing those. Where exactly is this?

  4. The view from the patio is beautiful! Oh to have a house by the sea.
