Nice little lockup on some vintage water skis. #badgehunting #cypressgardens #waterski #waterskiing

Many veteran #CypressGardens water skiers returned to #LEGOLANDFlorida today, where they entertained millions of Florida visitors for decades. Welcome home!

#cypressgardens minus the heat this place was beautiful.

I always feel a great sense of accomplishment when I get up on one ski, especially a narrow one like this.
Thanks @tracycollinsantonino for the video 😀

Cypress Gardens was a botanical garden, planted by Dick Pope Sr. & his wife, that opened on January 2, 1936. It was coined the "Water Ski Capital of the World" and quickly became Florida's first commercial tourist theme park. The park would be host to visitors, film crews and water sport enthusiasts alike. .
.
Cypress Gardens found themselves competing for guests when Walt Disney Resort opened in 1971. The park would change hands a few times in the years following and eventually would close on April 13, 2003. CG would never fully recover and on January 15, 2010, Merlin Entertainments purchased CG and built the 5th Legoland on the property. A portion of Cypress Gardens was saved and added to the National Register of Historic Places on April 14, 2014. .

The Super Skiers of Cypress Gardens. It's Show Time! – Harking back to the days when the equipment needed for a ski show fit in the back of a station wagon. (Sure would have made that trip to Rockford a LOT easier.) #showskiing #waterskiing #moreisbetter #swivelskiing #tutu #flatkite #loveblackandwhite #classicphotography #showskilife #makewaves #lifeonthewater #rampmasters #cypressgardens #

Found this sweet vintage plate - these rarely have my town, but, there we are with "the singing tower" and all! Love it! #vintagefinds #lakewales #boktower #singingtowers #carillion #winterhaven #cypressgardens #oldflorida #hibiscus #orangeblossoms

Rainy Day Feelz☔️:The other weekend My dad and I were digging through the garage and I came across a few old wooden skis. They were pretty beaten up and you could tell they had been rode hard and put up wet (🤓). I had always heard about my dad's old stories of hitting ski jumps and doing the pyramid with the pros..but to actually be holding the skis that he did it all on was special to me. What's even cooler is that he hand made the two leaning against the wall. The craftsmanship and badassery that shows in these skis is really neat to me. My plans are to restore all of these to their former glory and one day share the coolness. ✨#lakelife #waterski #waterskiworld #cypressgardens #cascade #westernwood #trickski #claytorlake #claytorlakewaterskiteam #americanwaterskiassociation

My three entries for my first art completion, one which won honorable mention. Theme was Winter Haven: Then and Now. Captured my memories of my hometown. All 11x14 done in ink medium. #cypressgardens #ink#winterhavenfl #bornandrasied #southernbelles #floatilla #lakeeloise #legolandflorida #floral

Encourage birds to visit your yard with these beautiful birdbaths. Birds need a dependable supply of clean water for drinking and bathing. Putting a birdbath in your yard can attract birds that don't eat seeds and might not otherwise come to your feeders.

Sweet old water skis at the lake home. Happy Friday! #waterskiing #cypressgardens #eldiablo #stickers

Missing my home state so much this week as my family lost someone very special to us all! No matter how old you get it always is there in your heart those beloved memories from childhood. My grandparents used to take me to Cypress Gardens a few times a summer to watch the ski show and to see the ladies in their dresses with the fabulous hoop skirts. I can remember thinking I would ski like this one day and wear those amazing costumes, but my non graceful side had other plans. Truly missing my childhood this week and all the incredible memories keep flooding. I guess you always want to be able to go home! 💕

The remains of Cypress Gardens attached to Legoland. The Banyan Tree is godly! They are amazing trees ❤️❤️❤️❤️ #cypressgardens #legolandfl #beautiful #vacation #florida
