    I live a half-mile from Lake Avondale- the sunning turtles are one of the signs of spring around here!

  10. Hey, this is my neighborhood! How cool! We love to go down there to see the turtles, snakes, and all sorts of birds – on the last trip we saw 2-day-old ducklings! Guess we should take more pictures…

    I love the fact that there are at least two other people from my old neighborhood that follow Cute Overload!

    Hey, I used to live about a mile away from this lake! I loved to take walks through Avondale Estates & kept wishing I could buy a house there. During the ’96 Olympics AE hosted the Polish teams.
