Old Florida (Part 3 of 3) – Bok Tower

One of the last stops through the real Florida is Bok Tower in Lake Wales.

Every Christmas they decorate the famed Pinewood Estate according to a theme, which each room completely different from the rest. So it was a spectacular time to visit!  Unfortunately I didn’t think ahead, so I apologize – no pictures of the Christmas decorations (I was too busy enjoying them to think to snap pictures!)

After touring the house, we wanted through their gardens and up to the Singing Tower which houses the Carillon. We didn’t stay long enough to hear the live music, but the recorded bells playing throughout the garden were amazing!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
