Sunset at Lake Florida January 18

We never get tired of watching the sunset. On our way to Saturday night church in Willmar we got these shots of the sunset. This picture is from the north side public access of Lake Florida.   Notice all of the tracks from cars and pick-ups driving out  onto the lake to go fishing. Have you […]

Another beautiful sunset at Dickerson’s Resort 11-15

It was another beautiful November day at Lake Florida. We are still monitoring the lake level until freeze up. We had another beautiful sunset today. Here it is from beginning to end. Watching the sunset over Lake Florida is always a special treat. We hope you enjoy it too!    

Full moon setting across Lake Florida

We not only have beautiful sunsets at Lake Florida, but sometimes the moon puts on a pretty good show too. However, the moon setting is not always as easy to get a picture of. It doesn’t set in the same place or at the same time (minus a couple of minutes) the way the sun […]

5-5-13 The Ice stays on!

In 2012 the ice left Lake Florida on the 18th of March. 2013 is a whole different story. It is now May 5th and Lake Florida still has ice! This morning we had so much fog with the ice you couldn’t see across the lake. 🙁 The beach is still there and it is great […]

The last April sunset

Winter Life at the resort

Resort Life in winter Life can be rather boring at the resort in the winter. Here are a few things that have taken our time and caught our attention this week. The Fishing Lure Bob was in the motor room rearranging some things and Simon our cat jumped up on his back. I don’t know […]
