Re: cannons

Oh that's just a typical middle class little home here in Miami. Not sure who lives there. There are so many like it it's hard to keep track.

This is a view of the "Barge". As you can see it's really more of an island dressed up to look like a ceremonial barge.

Interesting history behind the estate. Former owners were related to founder of International Harvester Company.

Y'all know I just hate being pedantic, but put a cannon on a boat and it's called a GUN. And yes, we have them!

"Interesting history behind the estate. Former owners were related to founder of International Harvester Company. "

His brother built another estate a few miles south on the coast of Biscayne Bay. Both are owned by the county and open to the public.
