Rodman Recreation Area

We love driving to a place here in Florida that we've never been to before.


(I used Photoscape, colored pencil on this photo)

 Rodman Recreation Area is part of the Cross Florida Greenway.


We drove across the dam and then watched the boats and people fishing.


It was a fun day trip and we can't wait to go back.

I’m joining Beautiful Sunday and
Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday.

My post today is about the Hoover Dam Diane!! I was not really wanting to visit there but my engineer husband had his heart set on it. It was more interesting than I thought it would be!!

What wonderful views, and I LOVE what you did with the first photo. Maybe I'll have to check out Photoscape! Is it a software program on the internet?

Montanagirl said...

Hey my friend - which link did you use to download Photoscape? I went and looked and there's so many choices. I want to choose a safe one!

The dam and recreation area looks like a place to picnic and spend some time people watching.

My grandparents once took me to visit a newly-built dam. I got into a lot of trouble later when I asked to be taken back to that dam place again. My grandmother nearly had a meltdown. LOL!

Jen @ The Light Laughed said...

It looks like a very interesting place to visit, and the water rushing would feel cool and pleasant.

How warm is it there now?
