Lettuce Lake walking in the wetlands

Not sure if it's considered a swamp...but along the Hillsborough River, is a great boardwalk in Lettuce Lake, a Hillsborough County Park which goes through the wetlands.

Cyprus knees give roots whatever oxygen they may need, poking up through the water which provides home to many water plants.

 Pretty purple flowers blooming on Pickerel Weeds.

I enjoyed it a lot...and got some great exercise on a coolish bright day.  The humidity off the river and the watery places all around it wasn't a bother because of a nice spring breeze.

 Next time I'll show you the view from the observation tower.


  1. Hello,

    That is a nice park. Lots to see off the boardwalk. Great series of photos.
    Happy Thursday, enjoy your day! Have a great weekend ahead!

  2. From the beach to the woods. I like the woods better although I wouldn't mind getting some sunset/sunrise beach photo. I just don't want to hang out there any more. There was a time though ...

  3. It looks like a wonderful place for a walk.
