A Walk Around Lake Okahumpka Park

Lake Okahumpka Park is just a couple of miles down the highway from Alliance Coach. We walk there regularly when the motor home is in the shop. Today, I am simply posting a few things that caught my eye as we walked and have not attempted to capture the whole thing.

This is the beginning of our walk.  We cast long shadows in the early evening.

We walked a short distance through the woods and then came back out onto the road.  I like the way the sun was shining through the vegetation at the edge of the woods.

This branch was especially bright with the dark trees and Spanish Moss behind it.

The side of the walking trail nearest the lake is lined with big trees and Spanish Moss. Most of them are leaning one way or the other.

The trail makes a big U around the end of a big field. I was struck by the sun shining on the trunks of the trees at the end.

Looking back toward the sun. This tree blocked just enough sun for a nice picture.

Then, we turned past the volleyball courts and were in the woods again.  This squirrel was right next to the trail but was not afraid of us.

We were passed by a jogger as we approached the edge of the woods and the holding pond next to the highway.

These large clusters of flowers were at the far end of the pond.

This is the best view of Lake Okahumpka, from the boat ramp. We have never seen the water level so low here.  The floating pier was sitting in the mud.

    There is a lovely woodland in Glasgow where you can sit and the squirrels will come up to you to be hand fed. We used to go there with my parents. Lovely photo of the squirrel and loved the final one too.

      Feeding the squirrels sounds fun. This one was too wild. It disappeared after I took a few pictures. Thank you; I was pleased with the squirrel picture too.
