Just a nice Saturday gondola ride down Phillippi Creek. That’s amore.
Hope this slows you down and you take a deep breath to enjoy such stillness.
If you enjoy the country, a slower pace and way of life, getting a little dirty and wearing a big smile on your face, you’d enjoy Clewiston.
Close to Lake Okeechobee, Clewiston is known as Florida’s “sweetest town” due to the plethora of sugarcane fields! Clewiston is a city in Hendry County, Florida with a mere population of approximately 7,175 give or take a few.
If you do visit, you truly go back in time especially when you stay at the historic Clewiston Inn. It was built in 1938 by the United States Sugar Company to host company executives and visiting dignitaries. Pretty cool eh? The inn is registered as a National Historic Site which I didn’t realize when I stayed there for one quick evening. Sweet Clewiston takes me so far back to my childhood days spent with my grandparents on their 88 acres of land in Filmore, NY. The sights, the sounds, the smells. Absolutely everything, including the music playing on the radio with the windows down as you cruise through the country roads without a care in the world and the wind in your hair. Even when I’m just passing through, I get sucked in and stop along the country ways to photograph God’s great Earth and fondly think of my grandparents. I thank you Mr. Clewiston.
Beauty. Freedom. Soaring. Together.
Quite the celebration.
A regular ride for humans but a speedy one for doggies! She’s at such peace with it all and is just taking it all in.
I especially like this particular angle that I shot showing the white line with the white car and the white lights from the vehicle way behind us. They must be texting though; they’re mainly on the inside of the bike path!!
I think she was flirting with all the male cars as we drove along side her on South Tamiami Trail. She kept winking at her passerby’s and the happy horns kept honking at her. She started showing a little tire at the last intersection before we turned off towards home. Her lashes were so long. She must be using that Latisse product that makes her lashes full and thick. Isn’t she pretty?
