Wekiwa Springs Trails: Orange County

We started last week with another daycation. This time to Wekiwa Springs State Park.

Upon entering the park, we received a list of twenty-five ways to enjoy Wekiwa. Of course, we started at the spring and were a little surprised to find several people swimming on a cool January morning.

A short walk on the “wet-to-dry” nature boardwalk, (number 9) on the list was the next order of business.

We then checked out the trail map and selected one to hike (number 2) and saw more than a few deer tracks on the trail (number 19).

On such a beautiful, cloudless morning, there was no doubt we’d take lots of photographs (number 15). And since a controlled burn was in progress, it was no problem finding evidence of recently burned areas (number 21).

Before leaving the park, we ate a picnic lunch (number 7) at one of the pavilions, making it easy to leave our stresses behind and relax (number 25).

Old Florida

If you love images of Florida in days gone by then you need to check out Old Florida on Facebook. Each day a half dozen or more pictures are posted of everything Florida.

Remember these postcards?
