129/365 Montverde Academy Spring Formal

Prom night 2009! Matt's school celebrated tonight and he attended his very first prom. I was thrilled to be his date and we had a great time. The school does things very well and all the students turned out in lovely attire and attitude.

For more pictures - view the album on flickr.

128/365 Lake Apopka

I took a driving tour around Lake Apopka today and discovered two interesting places.

The first was a nature reserve area amid the canals on the west side of the lake. It has horse trails, walking and biking trails. I'll have to do more exploring. Here's a view down one canal.

Another was Magnolia Park on the north east side. This park is huge - areas for camping, boat ramps and picnics. Very pretty views.
