Bok Tower Gardens with Nana! Part 2

Can you believe that this tower is over 19 tons of stone??
It was shipped in from GA. 

This place is so pretty! 

While were walking around it started raining. 
Thankfully we were able to find a rain shelter and we waited out the quick "Florida" downpour! 
While we were waiting we met some nice people and all watched in amazement as Alyssa chattered away in Spanish with them. She is so amazing! 

The views from this place were really beautiful! 

Stephen and Alyssa were too cute... Chasing each other and acting like little kids! I loved it! 
They had so much energy even in the Florida Summer Heat! 

This was dedicated to Edward Bok by one of his workers. The man saved for 7 years in order to pay for this Japanese inspired monument honoring Mr. Bok. 

I think it is really neat that this is where Edward Bok is buried. 

Right in front of the Brass Carved door of his tower! 

Stephen always makes silly faces as soon as I pull out the camera!

We were enjoying this area until....

Nana spotted a snake and then I was ready to leave! 

Look at this beautiful tree. I wonder how old it is??
50 years? 75 years old?? 100?

This was the first time that we saw the Lookout Window. How interesting!

I loved that they had food down so we could watch the animals.

They had many rare plants. 

Such a different flower! 

After walking around for several hours we decided to grab a bite to eat at their deli and call it a day! 
Making silly faces again! 

Isn't she pretty?

I love this guy!

I am sure we will be back again!
