See for yourself.
Welcome to The Villages, Florida's friendliest town!
Sunrise offered a very beautiful spectacle;
the water was quite unruffled,
but the motion communicated by the tides was so great that,
although there was not a breath of air stirring,
the sea heaved slowly with a grand and majestic motion.
- George Grey
A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature.
It is earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures
the depth of his own nature.
-Henry David Thoreau
I hear lake water lapping with low sound by the shore...
I hear it in the deep heart's core.
- William Butler Yeats
I'm an old-fashioned guy..
I want to be an old man with a beer belly sitting on a porch,
looking at a lake or something.
- Johnny Depp
