My lovely wife and I checked out some of the springs in the Ocala National Forest in Central Florida. We camped out at Alexander Springs for a few days, spent a day at Juniper Springs, then a few more days at Salt Springs.
This is a photo of Juniper Springs.
These springs are 72 degree water that just boil out of the ground. They are great places to swim.
I was suffering from a cold so didn't swim as much as I'd wanted to. I had plans to take the little boat down the Salt Spring run into Lake George, but wasn't feeling up to it. There were also whitecaps on the water so it really wasn't a great idea anyway.
After the Ocala we spend a few nights at Anastasia State Park in St. Augustine. My lovely wife was able to connect with her older sister in St. A, so she had fun. I spent some time trying to sort out computer troubles, but mostly I just hung out around the water.
Our departure from the campground was a bit of fiasco, but that's a tale for tomorrow.
