I noticed this statue for the first time last week while cruising the rock located about 2.5 miles NW of Beach Drive Sw. The statue was assembled with the end of the Mayan calendar in mind according to an Island blog named Inside Bainbridge. They caught up with the local stone artist who hauled nearly 1500 pounds of granite into place during our winter storms of 2012!
On second look, “Blakely Rock Man” may actually have his back to us.
Just a few days later I spotted what appeared to be a stone Tiki God planted off the shore of Beach Drive. Neighbors claim that if you listen closely, you can hear the feint sounds of drums late at night…
Back at ya!
