Bok Towers

Yesterday we went to Lake Wales to visit Bok Towers. This is the description of the tower from the website.
Looking up at the 205-foot Neo Gothic and art deco Singing Carillon Tower 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 fill the Gardens daily.
We layed down in the grass around the tower and listened to the bell concert, then enjoyed a nice stroll through the gardens. The azaleas are in full bloom and are just gorgeous. They had some very unique flowers as well. If you get a chance to drive out there take the scenic highway 17 and enjoy the blooming orange blossoms as well.
