Ferndale Preserve - Clermont/Ferndale, Fl

One day on a drive Duane and I came across a nice little area park called Ferndale Preserve.  It is off County Road 455 where Clermont and Ferndale intersect.  It had a really nice playground and covered picnic area and then had a really nice area to hike in with trails for both horses and people. 

Lake County has some information on the park and its hours here - http://www.lakecountyfl.gov/departments/public_resources/parks/ferndale_preserve.aspx

Yulee Sugar Mill - Brooksville, Fl

The day that Duane and I ventured out to the Chinsegut Preserve and Homosassa Springs we took a little detour to check out the Yulee Sugar Mill.  Where once an impressive sugar plantations stood today is just a few ruins, however the knowledge of the past is still present. If you are ever in this area of town this makes a nice stop off to walk around and check out.
