Washington Oaks Gardens State Park

We took the day Saturday to travel south down the coast of Florida to some places we haven't visited recently - or ever - to take pictures and to just get away for a day.  First stop was at Washington Oaks Gardens State Park.

This park is a great place to get away and relax a bit, enjoy nature trails, a rose garden, a pond with fish, and a stretch of land along the Intracoastal Waterway.  (There is another section of the park that extends over to the coast on the Atlantic ocean but we did not have time to visit that side this trip.)

For a park with the name "Oaks" in it there must certainly be stately oak trees to cast their majestic shade across the gardens:

Plenty more to come - water, roses, gardens, beaches, historic ruins... miniature ponies...

That seems a very nice place to take a calm walk.
