The rain was coming down on Saturday morning so we decided it was a great day to drive down to Lake Wales to check out the Legend of Spook Hill and Bok Tower.
First stop was to drive through historic downtown Lakes Wales. We drove on the outside perimeter of downtown and looked up the streets to see the old buildings because the dually won’t fit down those streets! So that was a quick tour of downtown. Then we were off for the main reason to go to Lake Wales – Spook Hill and Bok Tower Gardens. Spook Hill is where cars in neutral gear seem to move uphill on a slightly sloping road, defying the laws of gravity. The legend of Spook Hill (click on picture to read) makes you wonder!!!!!LOL
Or you can read the scientific reasons for Spook Hill.
After we had our fun (along with several other cars waiting in line) we drove over to Bok Tower Gardens
“The 205-foot neo-Gothic and art deco Singing Tower carillon is an experience like no other. Designed by famed architect Milton B. Medary and ornately crafted by noted stone sculptor Lee Lawrie, the Tower houses one of the world’s finest carillons. Concerts from the 60-bell carillon at 1 and 3 p.m. fill the Gardens daily.”
Now it was raining really hard (instead of the usual hard rain and then quit like usually happens in Florida) so we did not pay the entrance fee to go in and hear the tower sing. We will have to add this back onto our bucket list of things for another day.
