The Florida State Park Plein Air Painting Tour – Painting each of Florida's State Parks on location
Bulow Creek State Park is located in a particularly scenic section of Florida just north of Ormond Beach. Just off the famous “Ormond Loop” scenic drive this park is worth a stop.
The park has several different access points, most of them just pull-offs of the main road. We stopped at the water access point off of Walter Boardman road. While Rick checked out the fishing opportunities, I noticed this wooden carved tombstone nailed way high in an old oak tree. I wonder if it was nailed to a younger tree and grew that high, or if someone climbed the tree?
It was a bit muddy at that point, so we drove over to another access off Old Dixie highway and found the Fairchild Oak. I decided to paint the old grandfather oak. It was hard to tell if this tree was larger than the old oak at Lake Griffin State Park. I think Lake Griffin’s tree is wider, but the Fairchild Oak is taller.
