Trip Across Florida by Lake Okeechobee
July 30, 2001
We headed east from the Cape Coral area and stopped for a nice breakfast at a small restaurant in La Belle. East of there we traveled through large orange groves and then into sugar cane country.
Clewiston sits right on Lake Okeechobee, so we turned off toward the lake there to see what we could see. Clewiston has a neat park and a fishing marina on a narrow finger of water. It leads out to the large lake, which we could not see.
Clewiston laid claim to being the sweetest town in the country, surrounded as it was by sugar cane fields. It was interesting to see cane fields dotted by palm trees like those below.
A network of canals helped provide water and drainage for the cane fields.
