Pleasant Lake

Here we are in Bradenton FL at
Pleasant Lake is a carefree resort. They have about 59 resorts all around the country and we have found them to be really nice.

This beautiful lake is the reason this is called Pleasant Lake.

Petanque field. What is this? I really don’t know but its a game the Canadians play.

One side of the lake has the park models right on the lake with piers belonging to the residents.

Horseshoes is a must at any park.

Shuffleboard right next to the laundry and bathhouse.

Beautiful laundry with lots of washers and dryers. Plus great folding tables and iron and ironing boards.

Lots of birds visit the lake this one is anhinga.

I’m telling you people are so creative. This park model owner has a railroad in his side yard. 

Want to sit and relax around the lake. Chairs are provided.

More birds

Isn’t this just the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the view.

Park layout, as you can see the lake is big. 

Some of the activities posted.

Just one of the side streets.

This is the first time I have see a park model with a place to store your RV right next to you. I know there are other places that have this kind of layout but the are usually a stick and bricks kind of place.

This park is located off of I-75 at exit 217. We will be here until the day after Christmas and then we head to Arizona for the rest of the winter.
We are having a great time with our son and his fiancee and of course all the great thing to do and see here on the gulf coast of Florida.
