Day 265 – Lake Monroe FL

Day 265 – Lake Monroe FL
Lake Monroe

Lake Monroe

Lake Monroe is one of the lakes of the St. John’s River system in Florida. Sanford FL is located on the south shore of this huge lake (it is the 8th largest lake in the Orlando area). This shot was taken from I-4 on our way to Debary (on the North shore of the lake). Too bad we can’t swim in Lake Monroe, not only because of its rumored alligator infestation. A day on a boat out on the lake though sounds like a fun plan to me and I also enjoy taking in the magnificent view from one of the waterfront restaurants at the Sanford Marina 🙂

    I visited Sanford Florida from Texas this summer . I have family I visited there and it’s true I saw with my own eyes ahuge alligators head I saw it when my family members in Sanford Florida he was huge. But, there are other things to see and do. It’s beautiful in Sanford. It has nice people and endless beautiful buildings and the town it self is calm and peaceful. I visited alot of places while there. I got to swim with dolphins in St. Augustine and the ocean at St. Augustine was beautiful. It was so, relaxing there . If, go to St.Augustine You should go to Olsteens if, you like Seafood. If, its pizza you crave theres a pizza cafe there That’s just awesome it’s in St Augustine It’s inside a gas station there A shell gas station I think it is there in St. Augustine I Loved it. Also, in Sanford if, you like homecooked meals in a cafe style setting try I cant rember the name but, the cafe theres got awesome hamburgers. It I believe has a coffemug painted on the side I think. But, whatever you crave or like you’ll love the Homefeel of Sanford Florida or if , your more of a Ocean seeker go to St Augustine for a getaway.Be sure to visit the shrine and the shops of down town. Don’t forget to say hello to Peebles the dolphin and Kat the trainer from St. AugustinesMarineland tell them I sent you and to ask for Kat.You’ll enjoy your time. Well, no matter what you do in Florida you’ll not want to leave even though it’s time for home. But,when you get home you’ll want to share your awesome time.

      Thanks Wanda for this great review! I am glad you liked Sanford 🙂 You are right, it’s such a calm and peaceful town. I wish I knew which restaurant you tried, I would love to check it out too!
      I agree, I also love St. Augustine, it’s a great city with so much history. Hope you can come back to visit Florida soon!
