Boat at anchor on Lake Sumter

This boat, like so many other things in The Villages, is to look at, not use. It is across the lake, on the far side of Lake Sumter, but a long lens has compressed the distance intimating that it's near at hand.

I think it's a nice-looking vessel, even if it isn't "real."

Chair to nowhere

It's at the rear of the Barnes and Noble bookstore, this chair. It overlooks a small canal and parking lot. You can sit in it, but why? It seems to have no purpose other than decoration. In the second photo, I redecorated it a bit - changing the color photo to a color sketch.

Being a Disneyesque affair, Lake Sumter Landing has arranged for a boat to crash into a pier. If nothing else, it offers a point of conversation. Do you like the black and white photo better?

Bowling alley

If I recall correctly, this building houses a rec center and bowling alley. Whatever, it's a beautiful building just north of downtown Spanish Springs.

A river runs through it

Well, not exactly a river. A small stream. Near downtown Lake Sumter Landing. It's rather attractive though.

Theater at Lake Sumter Landing

Each of the two hometowns in The Villages has its own movie theater. They are quite attractive and do a brisk business. This theater is located across from the square in Lake Sumter Landing. Park your golf cart out front and go see a movie!
