I rode on one of these tours and I highly recommend it. I discovered it by reading the Grapevine. Thanks Tom!

I lost a very big oak to Andrew. When it blew over leaving a big, big hole in the ground which had covered a [pit]?, full of broken and fused glass, and a 4' x 4' foundation. My neighbor said "what the", did some research and said that my property had been a glass blowing facility that dredged sand from the Bahamas to make a good quality vase to hold water. My neighbor Ken said when Cuba had droughts and ships running gold, silver and precious stones couldn't get fresh sweet water for the voyage back to Europe. The ships would stop to get their precious H2o from guess where, The Coconut Grove Rainwater Company? It appears that the Grove had coconut, pineapple, & fern plantations, and exported feathers, fish, alligator skin & rare orchids. And at low tide people would harvest lobster trapped in rock formations. Jobie Steppe
