Blue Springs State Park, Orange City, FL
Blue Springs is where Jacques Cousteau made his documentary on the manetees. I live 5 minutes from here. I am a lucky girl. The temperature of this water stays at 72 degrees year around.
Each November the manatees come into springs to seek the warmer waters of the springs. It is quite the event. Thousands of tourists come to watch the manates.
At some point in the past history of the place, the home shown belonged to a private landowner. It was an excellent location to get deliveries from the paddle wheelers coming down the St. Johns River. If you ever get a chance to come and visit this wonderful place, who knows you might just run into me. :)
How would you like to swim with the gar?
