The Waterfront Inn - Lake Sumter Landing

If you wish to visit The Villages, and Lake Sumter Landing in particular, you may want to book a room at The Waterfront Inn, which overlooks, naturally, Lake Sumter.

I'd like this pool...nobody around except the kitty to see my flab.

Nice place, why it is so desert? A gators raid?

Any place with PALM trees, is a great place! I guess the Waterfront Inn would qualify! Nice snaps! Did they use your photos for a promo brochure??!

@ Safe Leif - We've done professional photography before, and a couple of years ago, we were trying to keep a small business together...we took some nice photos of this inn and the manager wanted to use them in a brochure. We said, fine, you can do that for $10.

Never heard back!!! (The $10 was, I thought, a rather nominal fee...and we could show a bit of income)...but noooooooo....

People are funny, as Art Linkletter used to say!

@ VP - I took these a couple of days ago. It was mid-morning; hot; and a weekday. Summer is not a busy time for The Villages. While there were a lot of folks driving back and forth through town, the streets were very quiet.

As things cool down, and the "snowbirds" come back from the north, the place will rock!

@ Bibi - I don't think that's a kitty. I think that is one of those faux owls perched there to keep the pigeons and seagulls away...

I don't think it works very well. The administrators of a school where I taught tried that one time. Put these faux owls around the roof of the building. The pigeons perched on the heads of the faux owls!

Looks like a very pleasant place to stay. It always interests me when a place on a lake also has a pool. ;-)

Jacob said...

@ EG - But you wouldn't want to swim in this lake...so the pool is necessary! Unless, of course, you're on friendly terms with gators...

I love these shots, beautiful colors. Are you using any photo tweeking programs?

Looks like it's a nice place. I have had a not so nice experience with an establishment called Waterfront in WA... So now I'm wary.

Jacob said...

@ Lake Weir - Sure. I use Photoshop 3 and LightZone. Gotta tweak your photos! I used to do it all in the darkroom; now I can do it faster and easier in the computer! :-)

Pretty nice looking - Is that a kitty cat on the railing around the swimming pool?

Jacob said...

@ Tricia - About that "kitty cat" - read my response to Bibi above...it's a hoot! ;-)
