Built in the 1920's from the coral rock quarry left over from the building of Coral Gables' many coral entrances and walls, the Venetian Pool was the very hallmark of 'The City Beautiful' and it's tony high high society aspirations to stand out from Miami proper... I was born in Coral Gables in 1954 and raised there. It is no longer the same but still, I miss it terribly. If any part of it has remained much the same it is this world renowned city pool. I didn't realize there were so many youtube videos of the Venetian Pool. There's a great many of them, and deservedly so. It's an incredible place. (Recently renovated yet again, I am saddened to see in these videos that what was once an intricate high dive tower with winding steps and pathways has now been converted to another set of falls. They already had one set next to the caves...) I haven't been back to South Florida in 9 years and am terribly homesick. I have shown plenty of stills of The Venetian Pool to my Lisa and talked much of wishing to take her there, but videos far better convey the wonder of the place.
