WWE – Ocklawaha, Florida Sept. 10

Here is my entry for Granny Shot It’s Water Water Everywhere (WWE) challenge.

Made a stop here on my trip from Tampa back to Jacksonville a couple of weeks ago. Moss Bluff Lock & Dam is just outside of Ocklawaha, Florida in the middle of nowhere. Amenities at the dam are a boat ramp, picnic tables & restrooms (beware of biting insects in the summertime). Great place to throw in a line, but a fishing license is required.

I was by myself on this trip. I stopped to use the ladies room. Walked into the building, really needing to go. Nope, some of the biggest mosquitoes I’ve ever seen in swarms. Turned right around and walked quickly out. They would have chewed my butt up! Decided I didn’t need to go that bad after all.

I wondered over to the dock. Of course, I left my camera in the car. Walked back to the car, retrieved my Nikon so I could capture these images to share. The view off the dock of the Ocklawaha River was spectacular.
