Yesterday there were more gators on Lake Tarpon than I have ever seen in a single day. They were just floating along and enjoying the sun on their backs. It was interesting, seeing them out 'sun bathing' on the lake and just floating next to the different birds, totally ignoring all of the birds. I still wouldn't get into that water!!!

Water lilies are starting to open on Lake Tarpon and I asked Ronnie to take me past them once again today to see if they are progressing. I love taking photos of water lilies and Lake Tarpon, which borders both Tarpon Springs and Palm Harbor Florida, is full of beautiful water lilies and lily pads. The perfect setting for photography.

Yes, it is going to be another Lake Tarpon day today! With Christmas week almost here and temperatures going up into the mid-70's today, we are taking a few hours to go back out onto the lake today! This will also give me a chance to work on taking videos with the new Nikon camera. I did not check the batteries last time, so today they are freshly recharged and ready for action! Lake Tarpon, here we come!

This is a typical December day along Lake Tarpon in Tarpon Springs Florida. As a matter of fact, we both got a bit of a sunburn yesterday because I did not think to bring along the sunscreen - something you always need down here in the Sunshine State. While Ronnie did troll for bass a bit yesterday, it was mostly just a day out enjoying the beauty of Lake Tarpon. I did some photographing and then listened to a Dan Brown audio book for a while while we slowly meandered along the shoreline and into various canals along beautiful Lake Tarpon. If you are ready to leave the snow belt behind and consider relocating either full time or just for the winter months to the sunshine, give me a call today. I would love to discuss relocation plans with you and set up a home or condo search for you he...

It is indeed boating weather today and Lake Tarpon Florida, here I come! The temperature will be up in the low 70's and it is going to be perfect boating weather. We are going to go out for two or three hours, have a picnic lunch out on the boat and I will be able to try out the telephoto on my new Nikon. With weather like this in December, who wouldn't want to live in the Lake Tarpon Florida area? If you are ready to relocate or find a winter home down here, give me a call today! Nothing can compare to winter in Florida!!!!

Window On Tarpon Springs, FL.  We strolled the main avenue in Tarpon Springs last week. It’s such a lovely walk especially when the weather is gorgeous, and we indulged ourselves with viewing the window displays in the variety of stores. I noticed this window treatment at one of the offices.   Downtown Tarpon Springs  is always a great place to spend a day with lots of antique stores, clothing, and other enticing goodies like food–great restaurants (Greek and otherwise). Have a relaxing lunch with friends and stroll the streets. And there are always festivals and  events going on during weekends-lots of fun. The Chamber of Commerce is also here and you can great information about Tarpon Springs from And don't miss the historical and beautiful Sponge Docks. Thinking of moving to Tarpon S...
