I had parked along the lake just past the park before, but it was last Thursday that I really discovered this long stretch of paradise. There is a small marina at one end, then a fishing pier, a small lighthouse at a peninsula, and that’s just along the shore.
At least six shelters with ceiling fans can be reserved for any gathering, plus there’s a community house and a cafe offering pizza, refreshments and other goodies.
Several signs along the shore warn of snakes and alligators, and sure enough one had his head above water and stared at me for a few minutes before submerging. Fantastic idea that they have several lawn chairs along the shore available to all. Money well-spent here.
Dropped in for breakfast just before Christmas, it was early morning so few people there. I was immediately greeted and seated, then ordered their silver dollar pancakes and hash browns.
In a few minutes get three pancakes much larger than silver dollars, plus a few round hash browns. Opted for lemonade this time.
So glad this chain is around, enjoy their retro-diner decor and ambiance.
First time here last Saturday, it’s across the parking lot from the Polk Museum of Art. Huge place with pop machine at entrance. Several desks with outlets for laptops and whatever.
Well laid out open feeling to this library. Impressive reading area with glass window facing Lake Morton across the street. A pleasant place tor work or pleasure.
