It's new and it's local!
The nice thing about this beach is that it isn't on the ocean...well it's not on the Gulf of Mexico, it's actually a lake!
Tons and tons of white sand was trucked in, soft, fine white sand.
The lake is large enough to do some serious kayaking, (which they rent for $10 an hour.)
Do you see a figure in these clouds blessing us sunbathers?
I enjoyed a wonderful afternoon under my pink and yellow umbrella
just one day before the Tampa area was deluged with rain and flooding.
Reading my book, people watching, I enjoyed the delights of the cool lake water.
The palms behind me are newly trimmed but will fill out soon and much of the landscaping is
still under construction but it's a great place to spend the afternoon!
The weather here is nice enough to enjoy this lake all year around.
It opened this month after years of planning and more it to be added in addition to the activities that are already here: inflatable slides which you can see in the top photo, the volleyball courts and Kayaks,
