View from Lake Highland

One of the things that struck us the most when we moved to central Florida was the sheer number of lakes. I remember driving around looking for our apartment and there were people paddle boarding - and I was struck by such a "We're not in Kansas anymore" moment.
What's so strange about that is when we first moved here, our address was on a road called Lake Shadow. Now we're near Lake Highland. It seems we can't escape it. But now that we're in Orlando instead of Maitland, we feel like we're so much more a part of the heartbeat and the landscape of the city. 
We can walk to restaurants and exercise classes. We can be almost anywhere in the city in about 10 minutes drive.
It's not QUITE as good as living on Bay Lake. 
But it's close.
