My friends and I celebrated Labor Day as we and many others in SW Orlando have for years by hanging out at Bird Island on Lake Butler. The weather was beautiful and everyone was out having a good time.
There were dogs running, kids playing, and adults drinking. There’s always a cast of characters out there and this time it was a Tiki Hut pontoon boat complete with a green feather parasol that stood out the most. The beach had been filled in with water from the rise in lake levels from the recent rains, but still plenty of space to park your boat.
It’s really one of my favorite places in the world, much less Windermere even when it’s not a holiday weekend. Everyone is super friendly and really out to have a good time. Now it’s Tuesday and back to work albeit in a much better mood and way more relaxed.
