Our Little Weekend Trip - MANATEE SPRINGS



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!!

The Whitleys: This is awesome, guys! Wish we could go here. I bet it was so nice to get away and spend time in such a beautiful area. And you are only 2 1/2 hours away. So great to see pictures.

Such natural beauty!
So are there manatees in the water? I would think it's too cold for snakes and alligators, right?
Weekend getaways are marvelous! :)

This is the place I would like to swim. Sooooooo beautiful. Doesn't look like Florida water.
