Hillsborough River and second gator

Last chapter of this wonderful walk through the swamps along the river, on a boardwalk! Lettuce Lake Park is just north of Tampa FL off of Fletcher Blvd. It's a Hillsborough County Park, I'm pretty sure.

 If you look closely at the snag of a dead tree in the water, you can see a full length sunning alligator...head to the right, legs just hanging over the deadwood. Not a care in the world!

 Florida means Spanish Moss to me.

 There were towering cyprus trees...giants that have weathered many storms.

 From the 3 story observation deck we could see further on the river.


  1. It's rather nice to enjoy your nice weather and environment from my rainy distance. Speaking of which, we might even get some snow overnight.

  2. Hello,

    I love the big trees and moss. The gator is just chilling there on the tree.
    Nice photo of you on the tower. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend.

  3. Snow has happened in April in other years, well March at least. Hope you get this wisp of spring air soon!

  4. Beautiful pictures! Makes me a little nostalgic for the Tampa of my youth.

  5. A good spot for a gator to laze away the day.
