What you say? A lost lake? Please! Really!
Sometimes I feel lost out here so far away from the hum of the city. I miss the sound of sirens, of traffic, raucous street folk, the downtown beat. I love the cacophony of bustling human life. I revel in the intersectionality of diversity. For me the unexpected dissonance results in energy. The who knows what will happen next feeds me. Oddly, I grew up on a lake, rife with nature, buzzing with motor boats and that fed me too. Hmmmm, I never knew my appetite could be so divergent. This world out here where life is more predictable is just what I need for now while I work on my next chapter.
If you follow Lee Boulevard south to 106th. You will find swimming pools , the Leawoof Dog Park, multiple game fields, and a great bike/walk trail. Followed east, west, south, or north by road or trail you will find generous parking, snippets of Indian Creek vistas in multiple directions. This is a wonderful spot to drive, bike, walk, or roll a wheel chair.
Or, shhhhh, don’t tell, these are the secret directions…
If you turn to travel west at the stop sign at 105th and Lee Boulevard, you will find the street dead ends on the edge of a quiet, bucolic lake. Park your car and venture down a path that circles the lake. This quiet spot edges restaurants, shops, cozy condos and sprawling homes at Mission Farms. Once you travel around the path to this mecca of delights you can choose any number of places to eat or peruse.
There is a bike shop, an interior decorator, and multiple restaurant choices. If the weather permits you might choose to sit outside.
Lakeside, at “Rye” you will find a cozy fireplace on the patio. You will be offered super cocktails and menu featuring farm to market selections.
