dog-walk

Psssss, two little birds (pooches that is) told me there is a dog park at the Wa-Ke Hatchee Park.

Entrance is at 16760 Bass Road, just a few miles from Gulf Harbour Yacht, Golf and Country Club.

Did you know Wa-Ke Hatchee is a combination of Native American names “cow” and “water”?

A creek cuts through this 50 acre property and was an important watering hole for the old Florida Cowboys as the last source of fresh water for their cattle as they headed to PUnta Rassa for shipment by boat to Cuba.
