Saturday Snapshot -- New View

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post on Alyce's blog At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
My parents live in Florida, and last week they moved to a new house on a golf course. My husband drove down to help them move and to bring back some of their extra furniture for us. (I know, we're much too old for hand-me-down furniture, but with the kids in college, that was the only way we were going to get new furniture.)
In addition to being on the golf course, the house overlooks a lake. Here are a couple of pictures showing their new view from their house.
 
This is a sunset over the lake. It looks so swampy and Florida, doesn't it?
 
And here's another shot that Earl took.
 
It's the moon reflecting in the lake. But I could say it's a flying saucer moving in to land. Since it's so dark, we can  use our imaginations.

Great captures! Autumn moons are especially striking, aren't they?

I like the flying saucer idea! And you're right...we can imagine anything.

"Recycled" furniture is a great way to change up the space.

I like finding things and using them in new ways, too.

Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

Very nice view! Too funny about still getting furniture from parents. :)

The flying saucer is fun! How are things going with the book? Did you make a FB page?

These are great shots. 'Specially the spaceship one.
I bet there are a lot of stray golfballs in that lake.... especially if anyone like me was golfing anywhere nearby....!!

Great shot of the moon - your parents have found themselves a lovely spot to retire to.

That's a great view! I had to laugh at the furniture. Some of the older stuff is better than what you can get new!
