Surrounded By It
Living in Florida there is water every where. We can't have basements here as once you start digging down you hit water. LOL I'm surrounded by lakes in city and about 10 minutes from the bay, 30 minutes from the Gulf. It's beautiful here and everything revolves around the water. We go to the lake (the ones with out so many gators) and there is skiing, rafting, boating, fishing and just enjoying. The beaches are great for that too and all the parks here have ponds or lakes as well. Unfortunately when it rains we flood but it's worth it.
