One of the Lake Jackson boat ramps near where I live. Click to enlarge the picture and you can see a boat speeding away in the distance. I liked the signs in this picture. In case you're wondering why motorized vehicles are prohibited on the lake bottom, it's because the lake bottom becomes exposed periodically as a result of Lake Jackson's long history of completely draining into the Florida Aquifer about every 25 years through the two large sinkholes lying beneath it. For this reason, the lake was known to native Americans as "Disappearing Waters". The last time it drained was September 16, 1999. Please visit Watery Wednesday for more beautiful watery pictures!
I won't be able to go visiting your blogs for a few days because I'm going to be busy with a friend's wedding festivities this week. I will catch up after it's over!
