Parking can be hard to find

At certain times of the day, it can be hard to find a parking place for one's golf cart in Lake Sumter Landing. That can make one late for the movie.

Winding up 18 holes

These folks are winding up 18 holes of golf on one of The Villages numerous golf course. The photo was taken from the boardwalk at Lake Sumter Landing with a long lens which compresses the distance.

Do not, I repeat, do not feed the gators!

We have spent many hours in Lake Sumter Landing walking the boardwalk and taking photos. We had never seen any gators. Until our last visit. Then, suddenly one appeared, maybe 20 yards out, casually gliding through the water, just the top of its head and part of its body visible.

I took a few photos, but it was too dark.

We did not feed it.

Customized golf car - just for you!

The golf car caught my attention immediately. I went to look and take some photos. The custom work was amazing. And it was for sale. The gentleman you see was very interested. He looked it over carefully, then wrote down the name and phone number of the owner.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if he bought it. I also wouldn't be surprised if he paid somewhere around $20,000 USD for it!

A sinking ship

Lake Sumter Landing. This sinking ship is fast becoming an icon. It is not sinking fast, however. But every time we visit it seems to have taken on a bit more water.
