Father's Day Ride

To celebrate Father's Day last weekend, 
we took a family bike ride.
We headed back to Lake Kissimmee State Park.

This park is located in Lake Wales,
and takes us about 20 minutes to get there.

With temps expected in the high 80's,
we knew we needed ample shade to enjoy our adventure.

Soaring pine trees greeted us on the long, 
winding road into the park.

There are picnic facilities, a campground, a playground
and a multitude of walking and biking trails.

We enjoy investigating what nature has graced us with.

At the marina, there are canoes available for rent,
as well as plenty of space to launch your own watercraft.

Something we hadn't seen before
was the availability of Segway rentals.

The nature was much more interesting.

This visit was short and sweet,
as the heat of the day was upon us quite early.
Glad we got to spend some time celebrating together
in a very special way.

Happy Summer! 


  1. I've always wanted to try a Segway--just once.
    But I know I'd always prefer a walk...

    Looks like a fun day out. Glad you got in a bike ride before the heat got too bad.

    1. Me too, I never tire of walking...

      Your garden looks amazing, Sue! Love the way you bring it all together.

  2. Looks so nice! Too bad it was so hot outside that you couldn't stay longer!

    1. Well, we got a late start. Lesson learned...

  3. That is so fantastic! What a beautiful place for a bike ride. And with family too. What a treat.

    1. It was quite a treat. We'll be back when it's cooler.


Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts!
