Hello Sweet Friends!!
Today was an absolutely gorgeous day in central Florida, so me and Maddy
headed out. We had a couple of errands to run and then headed to a favorite
destination...a drive around Lake Monroe and a much slower drive
through the historic district nearby.
Everywhere we looked there were spring flowers laid out like a
magic carpet for us!! What a delight after our coldest winter in
The lake is quite large and feeds into the St. John's River. Today it
was glass-like and so very serene.
A bench overlooking the lake...won't you join me?
What is it about marinas? I have loved them ever since I was a child.
Our family owned a 31 ft. sailboat and sailed often.
Maybe it's the fun memories!! I think they also just imply
LEISURE; something most of us need more of!!
A little bit closer
Palm trees line the walkway next to the marina
A lovely knockout rose
And of course, we had to take in some historical homes!!!
Don't you love that window at the peak? Oh and the brick roads???
I think I have shown this one before...must be a fave of mine!
Love the front screened porch on this craftsman!
I have no idea what kind of tree this is, but it is really this bright yellow!!
Any of you know??
Tomorrow morning we are up and out of here early....
