This is one of the springs in FL - Manatee Springs. It is about 20 minutes from the Gulf Coast. As you can see, this water is crystal clear. It is very, very deep and also very, very cold (73 degrees)!! Once you get in tho and start moving, it feels great. We got up very early and drove 2 1/2 hours to get here. We stopped and had some breakfast on the way. Then we went hiking around the springs and then we went swimming. On the way home we stopped for a delicious dinner. We had an absolutely wonderful day together!!
