Remember the bench from a few days ago? Here is the view from that bench at Desoto National Memorial on the Manatee River. This beautiful park is 7 miles from our front door.
[photos taken August 2003]
Sitting on the bench at the top of the hill, above and below you are looking to east.
Turn your head and look behind you and you will see a very large Gumbo Limbo Tree.
Below is the view looking to the West....
there are miles of hiking trails that follow the river and around the bay. below photo you can see part of the trail. there is a museum there and grass huts. If you missed the post on grass huts CLICK HERE and HERE
