October Days

It’s still in the 80’s F here in sunny central Florida.  Today we’ll take a quick look at a small local park in New Port Richey, Florida.  I love river views.

I was raised in Tennessee but have lived in Florida for many years. Love my small home in the Tampa Bay area and its developing garden. My decorating style is eclectic - some vintage, some cottage, all with a modern flair. Pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Spent many years in social services but am happily retired.

  1. What a beautiful little park to explore! I have a favorite Florida park I like to visit every time we are down that way. I hope we can come down soon.

    1. Unfortunately I know too well the dark and dreary skies of Michigan. That bothers me more than cold temperatures. But you do have a beautiful fall and spring!

  2. Beautiful pics. You know, I could live in Florida. It’s not any hotter than Tulsa in the summer and is generally not too cold in the winter. It is such a huge and diverse state.

    1. It is colder in winter as you go north in the state but moCst has a mile winter. Come on down – we’d love to have you in the state!

    1. if memory serves me well, I believe you are in NY which is the northern border of the country in comparison to Florida’s southern tip position – sending you warm sunny thoughts

  3. Hello,

    Nice park and view of the river. The sky looks beautiful, a lovely day. Enjoy your day, have a great weekend!

  4. I agree a view with water is beautiful. What a lovely place to spend your time. Thanks for showing us around gorgeous sunny Florida.
    Take care. 🙂

    1. I moved to Florida to escape dark winters – makes me sad. Of course my summers are really, really hot and humid. Then I spend a lot of time inside with the a/c, but it’s better than cold, dark winter days. You can grow plants I cannot. Everything has its pros and cons. Semi-tropical to tropical works for me – you’d miss some of your birds that don’t come through here but there are plenty of birds here – especially the waders (I call them water birds). You ought to come visit some winter (after the world is no longer crazy, not now!) Winter here is paradise.

  5. Those are some really beautiful views! We had one day last week when it was nearly 70 and it felt so weirdly warm for October (up here!). #MMBC

  6. Gorgeous views, Carol. Enjoy the lovely weather.
    We had 80 degrees here last week and then all of a sudden the temperatures dropped down by 20 degrees. Funny place. 😀

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
