These beautiful floral plantings are located next to the Town Center Plaza in Lake Sumter Landing, Florida. This has been cross-posted to Ocala & Central Florida Photos.

Please note that as of today, this blog - The Villages (Florida) Photos) - is inactive. We have posted pictures to this blog for several years and believe we have provided a fair understanding of what The Villages is all about.
We visit The Villages on occasion and will, naturally, take photographs. These photographs, however, will be posted on our Ocala & Central Florida Photos blog.
Our sincere thanks to who have taken the time to stop by and comment on our photos of The Villages.

Not long ago, we posted a photo of the new golf car sales center and gas station in Lake Sumter Landing. This golf car garage is part of the complex. Golf cars, just like regular cars, will need repairs and servicing at times.
Now you can buy a golf car, gas it up and get it fixed all in the same place.

This is a relatively new facility. They sell golf cars, gas 'em and fix 'em. Lest you think this is kind of ridiculous, you should know that transportation by golf car is the way to go in The Villages. There are so many people moving to The Villages that not only are the roads jammed with "normal" vehicles but also with golf cars! And the distances can be a challenge so more and more folks are buying gas-powered golf cars.

When we arrived in Lake Sumter Landing the other evening, we saw all these golf cars lined up in a parking lot. If you click on the photo to embiggen it, you'll notice they are all have basically the same frame or outward appearance. The owners of these golf cars were gathered together listening to a speaker. Shortly thereafter, they went to their golf cars and departed the scene. Where they went, nobody knows. (BTW, these are fairly expensive vehicles!)

This door, in Spanish Springs, seems less welcoming than some other doors. Perhaps that's because The Villages is overpopulated and still growing. In fact, it is now the fastest-growing city in the United States with over 114,000 residents and at least that many golf cars!

Las Tapas is a relatively new operation in Brownwood - it is a Spanish tapas bar, a restaurant and a brewery.
We decided to give it a try not long ago and were somewhat disappointed. As you can see, very few people were present. Our waitress was harried about something and as a result the service was dismal. Dismal could also be applied to the food.
Perhaps Las Tapas was just having a bad day.
