Tanglewood Tango



 Come do the tango walk with Rich and the MadSnapper, through the patio villas called Tanglewood.
 Can you guess WHY it is named TANGLEwood?
 No, the sun did not come out, the MadSnapper changed the White Balance on the last few, these are out of the camera except for re-size for web.
 These Villas appear to be in an enchanted forest, the villas have a heated pool and tennis courts and are one of kind and really unique. All of this is mere steps to shopping, hospitals, doctors, dining and entertainment. Nestled in the heart of Bradenton. The Big Bonus is:  Ten Minutes to our beaches and for me and Rich just across the street.






Over the next 3 weeks, my Friday Fences will show the stunning fences in this beautiful area. And coming soon to a blog near you.... The Trees/The Plants and of course Because I could shots in the area.

Now I see why it's called Tanglewood. There's so many beautiful trees and the landscaping is just so lush. I can see why you and Rich took a walk through there. This looks like a beautiful place to visit or retire. I would be out walking everyday and enjoying the heated pool...wow! There must be a lot of wildlife around there. Im so looking forward to seeing more of this enchanted forest. :)

I love the way the tree limbs are all tangled together, it gives the area an enchanted look. This must be a wonderful place to live but you would have to be vigilant or the your home could become entangled in the trees.

Absolutely beautiful, and is that Spanish moss hanging from the trees? That looks so magic. You live in such a beautiful place ^_^
Have a lovely day!

Wow---that area reminds me so much of the retirement home my Mom lived in, in Jacksonville, FL. There were villas like these in her area ---plus all of those wonderful trees and manicured grounds... AWESOME.

Bet those villas are quite expensive in your area... BUT--of how gorgeous... Love it. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs,
Betsy

I'm confused... You mean that you live "just across the street" from this lovely area? And can walk in the paths?

It is like an Enchanted Forest!!!

And being this lovely, it isn't gated?

TexWisGirl said...

EG Wow said...

It looks so magical! If it weren't for the summer heat, I would enjoy living there, I think.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

It is absolutely beautiful. Those trees are amazing.

George said...

I would say that Tanglewood is a perfect name for this area. It sounds like a great place to live with many great photo opportunities all around.

DawnTreader said...

Really looks like an enchanted wood (and I love the name Tanglewood!) Not sure why but led my thoughts to The Wizard of Oz with the Yellow Brick Road. (Okay, so maybe the wizard I saw in yesterday's photos was Oz!)

Ann said...

Yes, it's quite clear now how it got it's name. That is amazing how those trees grew. That looks like a very beautiful area.
White balance settings do make a big difference don't they. I hate it when I have it set to one thing and forget to change it for a different setting

S. Etole said...

It's enchanting the way the branches are intertwined and the thick growth of the plant life.

Southwest Arkie said...

Wow. Just WOW.
