Crystal River Preserve State Park

We drove to the Gulf Coast last weekend and made a few stops along the way.

We love visiting our state parks. Crystal River Preserve State Park has a lot to see. “The park borders 20 miles of the northern Gulf Coast between the two cities of Yankeetown and Homosassa.”

Crystal River has some neat places to visit and I saw a few fences to share. We’ll look through a few of them to see what’s on the other side.

Like this Great Blue Heron.

And how nice it would be to be fishing along the bank of this river.

So many sights to see and photos to take!

Our Subaru was wishing it had a little trailer to pull behind it! lol

I’m joining Tex for the

Good Fences party.

Diane, I love your photos. The one with the heron is wow. Should be a card. I can see you now with your little trailer full of dolls going down the road. :):)There's a sweet little girl inside you, you know. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

TexWisGirl said...

a great green area with palms and pines! thanks for the fencery and the cute tagalong trailer, too. :)

Connie said...

The river photos look so pretty, but aren't you afraid of alligators . . . that would spoil my fishing on the bank idea.

LV said...

I thought I posted a comment earlier, but guess I didn't. I love all these photos. Such a beautiful place. My favorite one is of the heron.

Nice photos, all of them. I love the little trailer, would love to see the inside.

Linda Kay said...

Diane, hard to beat those old rail fences. I'm always fascinated with those tiny little trailers some folks use for camping. Not for me, I'm afraid.

cynthia lee designs said...

Great photos!! My SUV has a hitch on the back of it and I keep telling my hubby that I hear it saying it needs a camper to pull.!!
hugs,
Cindy

I enjoy visiting state parks, too. Nice scenery and fences--and of course, the Great Blue Heron! I love finding a view with a bird in it. ;)

BeachGypsy said...

I haven't been to those places but we discovered those back roads in Florida a few years back and ive loved them ever since! There is so much more to Florida than the beaches! I do love your state

Hi Diane
Sure looks like another lovely place to visit! Have you gotten a lot of rain? My Sis lives in Apollo Beach and she said she had rain 20 days in a row.

Diane Writes said...

"So many sights to see and photos to take!" - Wish I had those problems too LOL But seriously, I always love your photos and posts. Everything looks so refreshing, relaxing and even your anecdotes never fail to make me the happiest.
