Homosassa Springs Area
This little spring was bubbling out the most delicious looking blue water and was surrounded by a golden bouquet of frilly algae. There was just enough room in the channel to slip in a kayak bow for a picture.
Some springs were bubbling out of places where even our kayaks couldn't get to. So we walked the rest of the way. This 'secret' place, called the Crack by locals, had a swinging rope allowing one to swing out over the spring and jump into the 72°F water! Fun!
Aaaah! To live in a nice, cozy $300,000 US cottage on the water, with manatees basking by the dock, bubbling springs just around one corner, and the wide open sea around the other... If only!
