Living in paradise is a wonderful thing. Last week, I drove down the River Road as I call it and snapped some pics with my camera phone. I love living near the water, and it soothes my soul to be near this beautiful river. I feel rich when I ride down this road. Just to see the water, the birds, the flowers and tress, and the gorgeous homes is such a blessing.
I hope you enjoy this little tour of my paradise.
As I headed south on the River Road, I enjoyed the white fence, the palm trees and oaks with moss draping a canopy overhead, and then I spotted a roadside fruit stand. Isn't it paradise to have fruit sold on the side of the road using the "honor" system? You pick your fruit and leave the money in the coffee can! I love where I live!
I feel so blessed to see sailboats, wading birds, and most of all, the night-blooming cirius. They only bloom one time and are spectacular. Just another benefit of living in paradise.
The River Road winds around the curves of the river and up and down her hills. There are some pretty high points that look over white sandy beaches - so pretty! We get our "Fall" color in December here in sunny central Florida, so I even get to enjoy the turning of the leaves.
Another joy is seeing the "painted ladies" - beautiful Victorian homes. Here are two decked out for the holidays.
The most beautiful part of paradise is seeing the sunsets. I believe G-d draws near at sunrise and sunset, because I feel such joy to see what He's creating. Thank you G-d for my simple pleasures and abundant blessings. Thank you for letting me live in paradise on earth.
