Discover the natural beauty of Florida!
Hello and Welcome to

Some folks call me Lily.
They call our Lake House 'The Lily Pad'.
'The Lily Pad' is home base for our daily canoe and kayak trips.
We usually see Lily Pads, Gators and Migratory Birds
on the waterways of Florida.

If you are browsing this website, you are most likely a paddling friend,
or a friend of a paddling friend.

Florida is blessed with a variety of naturally beautiful places!
So many waterways...from black water rivers to aqua blue spring runs.
This website is dedicated to the beauty of ''the Real Florida''

Have you been up close and personal with 'gators, turtles, manatees, and migratory birds lately? If not, what are you waiting for? ;0)

We are centrally located on beautiful Lake Santa Fe in Melrose, Florida.

We venture out each morning for a day on the river.
At the end of the day,
our home offers a cozy place to  relax and tell river stories.

Do you like being on the water and seeing the beauty of nature by boat? Do you enjoy exploring new places and meeting new people?
If so, Let's go Lily Paddling! :)

This website honors the natural beauty of Florida, helps to keep up with paddling friends, and documents our adventures on the waterways of Florida.
