Lettuce Lake in the morning – Skywatch Friday

The moon was still out when I got to the park at 8am.

You would think by these pictures that it was started to feel like fall around here. Oh no, we’re still at 85 degrees. We’ve been getting a lot of rain so I’m not sure why some of the leaves were turning so early.

It was nice to see the red leaves. Something we don’t see often here. Most of the time it goes from green to dead.

There were more spiders than birds.

This looked like a big cotton ball in the middle but it’s some kind of spider web.

You had to keep an eye out over your head as you walked along the boardwalk. I kept doing spider checks in my hair.

Lake

View of the lake from the tower. Taken with my phone. You can just barely see the moon in the sky.

I had a nice weekend morning walking around Lettuce Lake Park in north Tampa. The weather was perfect but the birds and animals were scarce. The swamp was flooded so the wading birds were not around. I got a good 3 hour walk in before heading home for lunch.

  1. These scenes and characters round the lake are delightful. Amazing that you rarely see autumn colours. Though this year, in our spring, some of our trees have barely blossomed – just from bare to leaves.
