This is a life-size figure of Beowulf, the dragon slayer of legend.
He stands over the entrance of Dragon Hall Bookstore.
This dragon stands in the Palm Plaza, over the entrance to the Dragon Theater.
This is one wall of the Palm Plaza. The two inset lines in the wall behind me are actually fountains that flow down into a pool behind the barrier I'm sitting on.
This is another one from the bookstore - a bas relief telling the story of St. George and the dragon.
I so want one like this in my house now!
This is the Spitz A3P star and planet planetarium projector that was used up until the year 2000 to train NASA'a Mercury astronauts. Hmm... might make a cool author photo for the backs of my future sci-fi novels, what say?
And, hands down, the highlight of the trip: I met Ken Ham!!!!!
He was at the museum for just a short while on our first day there, so I was able to get my picture with him. I was so excited, I could have screamed! For me, this ranks right up there with meeting Martin Luther (not just the wax figure) or William Tyndale, no joke. After meeting Jason Lisle this spring, and now this, I'm running out of names on my 'people-to-meet-before-I-die' list!
Alright, that's all the pics for now. I've got one more batch to post, as well as a few more Pursselley mishaps to relate, so be watching. In the meantime, hope you've enjoyed these!
