A Florida Gate

Hubby and I were recently visiting the area where I grew up.  The lake that I grew up on is still the quietest in the area.  It's still beautiful and peaceful for the most part, but now there's a Publix five minutes away instead of twenty. lol
The pics of the deer didn't come out very well, but I couldn't resist showing you their sweetness.  
We saw this gate that caught my eye.  I really liked it!  I thought of Theresa, TexWisGirl, immediately!  She always has pics of such cool and interesting gates in Texas.  
This gate is for you, Theresa! :)


If you click to enlarge image you will see that there is a plaque on the gate with two horses.

I love your shots of the deer and I think they are great. Because they are so easily spooked getting decent photos is hard to do. That is one very cool looking gate.
