I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” ~Michelangelo

I don't know if this hunk of marble would inspire Michelangelo, but it was a surprising find in the sand at Ft. McRee. It looks as if it may have been part of some sort of sea wall or jetty. It is so unusual to see any kind of rock or boulder here, let alone marble, that this was quite a find. Too bad it was so heavy, it would look great in my garden. But then, I would hate to move something that most likely has been in the landscape a very long time.


  1. Oh wow at first I thought it was sand. This is fantastic. I agree with you, it should stay where it is...

  2. Okay, wow! I didn't know you could find marble here in Florida. Looks huge. Too bad you couldn't find a small piece to have as a treasure. Maybe next time.
