~Tonight’s Sunset~

Sunset on Lake Hammond
Sunset at Lake Dixie

The sunsets, at Lake Louisa State Park, this week haven’t been very pretty or just non-existence, because of heavy cloud cover. 

Tonight’s sunset, looking west from the pier at Dixie Lake, paints a different picture! It was breathtaking.

We are heading out in the morning traveling to Little Manatee River State Park. This will be our first visit to this Florida state park.

Nature’s beauty… 

~Lake Louisa State Park- sunsets, birds, orange groves and move~

The sunset looked like a painting

At the end of the day,

Take a deep breath, 

While lifting your face,

Toward the horizon,

Relax, admire the colors,

Painted across the sky,

Let the beauty bring you joy.

Lake Louisa State Park is a gorgeous state park located in Clermont, FL and is one of my favorite! Go out to this web-site and learn about the park’s history.

http://www.floridastateparks.org/lakelouisa/default.cfm

(from the Web) A short drive from Orlando, this park is noted for its beautiful lakes, rolling hills and scenic landscapes. Lake Louisa, the largest in a chain of 13 lakes, is designated an Outstanding Florida Water Way. Lake Louisa, Lake Hammond and Lake Dixie, the park’s most accessible lakes, provide opportunities for fishing, canoeing and kayaking. Anglers can fish in four of the park’s six lakes, but gasoline powered engines are not allowed. Primitive camping facilities are available for equestrians. For hikers, there are more than 25 miles of trails. The park also has a full-facility 60-site campground and 20 furnished cabins for rent.

Enjoy each moment!
