Florida towns with a lot of bodies of water?

For a crime novel:

Is there any city or town in Florida, or just the south, that has a high concentration of bodies of water? I'm not asking about a place with a proximity to the ocean or a gulf, but rather, a town that has a great number of lakes, rivers, etc.

Is there anywhere I could go to look this up? I hate to make a town up completely. It's annoying. I hope this isn't too stupid or confusing of a question. I tried Google and it keeps listing random facts.


Is there a set designer in the house?

Hiya folks.
Would any of you happen to know what the thing scene lighting people put over a stage light to produce a particular pattern (for example, to make it look like the light is coming through a grate in the ceiling) is called? It's not part of the cellophane, I know that. I need to know this for something I'm writing, and putting in "the thing that stage people put over lights to make patterns" to google hasn't been particularly productive.

traditional Cherokee dress

Clearly my Google-type-skills suck. But I have tried every search string I could think of and have yet to find a really good link on traditional Cherokee dress. Mostly because I have a very specific question, would Cherokee women have ever worn feathers in their hair and if so would it have held a specific purpouse or meaning?

And if anyone can find a good link to traditonal Cherokee dress from before the influence of White culture that has excruciating detail I would love you forever.

Edit: And Cherokee.org was the first place I checked.
