Good Fences #1 “Florida Style”

I know many think of the ocean and sandy beaches when they think of Florida, and oh how I love the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf Coast. But there are interesting things to see in the interior of Florida, too!

We drive past this beautiful gate on our way to Canaveral National Seashore.

I always look forward to seeing it!

And when we get there, it’s nice to see some of these!

I do think of sandy beaches and palm trees when I picture Florida just, I suppose, those who never been to Colorado think we are one big ski resort. Oh. I intend to buy some natural mosquito repellant that you mentioned. Here Mosquitos carry the deadly virus (drawing a blank on the name). Once mosquito season starts we cannot leave the house with out spraying down. I'd rather have a good natural relevant. Have a great week end.

Oh yes indeed this is quite inviting, and what is that stunning and most beautiful green stuff?!

What a beautiful entrance to the ranch - I'm surprised it doesn't have a paved driveway!!?

I love a good fence ... I grew up with some really horrible fences, and because of that I always admired the really sturdy fences every other farmer seemed to have! I do like this entrance way to what looks like a beautiful ranch. Will have to check out this link ... not your typical link party ;) Have a great weekend! Wendy x

Dee Lapin said...

It sure looks like a great place to visit. I love all your beautiful pictures.

Diane said...

Nice photos! Those shells are amazing!

Vee said...

Did you gather more? You could create a sea shell pathway as some do on our coast and I'm sure that it is done there, too. You are an excellent spokeswoman for Florida!

Kathy said...

Oh, love that gate. Makes me want to go through it and see what's on the other side.

Nancy's Notes said...

Have a great day!

That is a really 'western' looking gate for Florida but it's very beautiful too. Gorgeous photos Diane!

Carol Z said...

What a fun idea! I'm going to be looking for the gates in my neighborhood.

Pam said...

Ariadne Skyrianidou said...

Oh sea glass, so great!And from Canaveral? Is that where the rockets are launched? I hope you collected some!AriadnefromGreece!

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Very cute! And you're right, I would never associate Florida with cattle, but I'm sure they're there:@)

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Oh what a lovely visual treat you have blessed me with. It looks fantastic.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I would love to see Florida but it will never happen as my husband has never had any desire to visit the States! Never the less we have the whole of Europe at our finger tips and so much history to look up :-)
Like the look of the anti mosquito cream, nothing here seems to work very well!! have a great weekend t'other Diane

camp and cottage living said...
