A Drive to the Gulf Coast of Florida “Withlacoochee Bay”

I was wondering how I could use these photos in a Good Fences post!

But if you make it to the end, you’ll see I’m in good shape.

Since it’s SO HOT here in Florida, we are enjoying a few day trips.

This is only about an hour from our house so it’s an easy drive.

Looks like a lot of people put their boats in the water today!

And it’s always beautiful! We even saw some dolphins in the water but I didn’t get any good photos of them. Every time I clicked a photo, they went back down!

Oh, and did I mention a ‘good fence’?

This was on our way out to Withlacoochee Bay.

So I'm joining Tex for Good Fences!

Looks like a fun day trip! That yellow fence is quite eye-catching!

Great day! You always find your fences!

The first picture looks like you're on a deserted island! LOL! It must be cooler out on the water from the looks of all those boat trailers. I love those cute shops they have in out of the way places. That one looks really interesting! Great fence picture too.

Diane, I really enjoy your posts. They are always short, not too long, interesting yet lovely pictures, and positive in many ways. I try to do the same - sometimes I'll do a post that's a little longer, but most of the time, it's short and sweet.
I appreciate your posts very much. Just wanted to tell you that.

love, ~Sheri

I know just what you mean about the photographing of dolphins!! They tend to be sneaky!!

Loved this outing Diane.

Looks like a great outing. You are lucky to love so close to the beach. I enjoyed the fence with the flamingos.

Shelia said...

Hi Diane! Oh, what lovely snaps! When in Florida, you must have flamingos! :) Thanks for popping in to see me and I don't have the sense God gave me. Instead of growing more mature I seem to be slipping back into my childhood! ;)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)
