Today's photos are an unofficial followup to this post.
I sure do love this beautiful twilight photo of Skull Rock; it's an unusual angle, and really shows the beauty of the grotto that led to the dining area behind the Pirate Ship. There are those "natural" benches made of volcanic rock. The last rays of sunlight have turned things a rosy pink. Two grannies are enjoying the waterfalls and pools. Or maybe they are just groupies of Paul Phillips.
Over on the other side of the castle, we would find another grotto, this one inhabited by marble versions of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (along with a few animal pals). This always reminds me of a Disney-fied version of the fountains and sculptures at the Villa d'Este just outside of Rome (it wouldn't surprise me if that villa was an inspiration for this feature).
