Silver Springs

Approximately 1.5 hour drive from our house in the Ocala National Forest.
Saw these turtles on our glass bottom boat ride.
This gator followed our boat next to where I was sitting.
They had a few different animals here and I think the giraffes are the cutests. The 1930-1940s movies "Tarzan" were filmed here and a bunch of the monkies they used in the movies escaped and have lived there ever since.  You could hear them all over the place when we were walking.
Almost the whole place is covered in trees like this, so we were basically never in the sun the entire time. What a fun day we had!  Next time we are going kayaking at Juniper Springs.

Oh my goodness, it looks so pretty here. It almost reminds of the place Kevin and I went when we were all at Vero Beach. So are the monkeys able to go where ever they want or are they caged in? You both look so cute

I enjoyed looking at the pictures of your trip. I have always wanted to visit the springs. Florida has a lot of pretty places but I don't care for the alligators. Your hair looks so lovely,Katie. I would like to try the kayaking.
