Southwest... To Clermont, Florida

Sadly, the maximum stay in Florida's state parks is fourteen days.  Eric and I say our goodbyes to Gamble Rogers State Park and start our two and a half drive southwest to Clermont.

We start the day on
Florida State Road 100.

This section of road is
 perfectly straight.

We turn onto Florida

This section o road is the Black Bear Scenic Highway.

An eclectic mix of
Art, Fruit &
Boiled Peanuts

This is an Evacuation 

We are about thirty miles inland from the Atlantic Coast. in this relatively flat state.  Many coastal storm evacuees drive for many miles to safety.

leads us into
 deep woods.

A motorhome in need
of new owners sits

Drivers are warned to
watch for Black Bears.

There's lots of bear in

The woods open up &
we pass fenced in

Spanish Moss hangs from
Oak Trees.

The effect is spooky.

The Tavares
Water Tower

Eric at one of the few
stoplights along
today's drive.

And take the bridge across
Little Lake Harris.

This is not a "little" lake.

Cows rest in the shade.

South on US Route 27....

It would be nice if all
speed limit signs were
posted next to route

Lakeridge Winery in Cleremont
grows their grapes on site.

The Citrus Tower is the
area's "high point" & a
favorite tourist stop.

Eric & I arrive at Lake
