Okay Diane....I know 2 places in the county to cross the Oklawaha, and these pics aren't familiar to me. Where did you take these? and where did you get out to walk? Share!!! LOL!

Those drive around in your own area trips are some of my very favorite. We did that night before last...or was it yesterday? I am so tired I don't remember...lol

I LOVE that picture of the clouds. I think FL has some of the most beautiful cloud formations in the USA. Just gorgeous- Hope you had wonderful Sunday- xo Diana

It's fun to get in the car and take a drive just to see what is going on somewhere else. It gives you a new perspective of things. Valerie

Mary Howell Cromer said...

It looks like a wonderful day and drive. Wow that could formation was pretty awesome. Love the image of you on the walk bridge. If we did a circle drive around our county...it would be a long way, for we are in the largest county in the state of KY...hmmm might mention it to the husby though~
