Aside from being a circus creating genius, John also had a passion for art. Not just collecting it, he really studied it SO he could collect it properly.
Make sense? Hell, I don’t usually.
Their home, the circus museum and the art museum reside on 66 acres…directly on the water.
The house was built in the 1920’s. Mable oversaw every detail of the house. The house was named The House Of John, but the builders referred to it as Mable’s house. It was built in the style that they loved so much, Venetian Gothic.
As we walked out on their back porch we noticed the intricate tiling.
Yeah, I just called this a back porch!
He might have said something important to me as well, but I was distracted.
I was admiring the architecture, the scenery, the flooring while trying to listen to him and then I saw a little turtle bobbing in the water.
Guess what I shouted when I saw the cute turtle?!
I shouted TURTLE!!!
What else would I have said??
