We are back at Rainbow Springs, near Dunnellon, Florida. I say back, we were here about to search out something new for us when we got the call to Ypsi, last winter. Johnny was in need of his Sister. Well he didn’t know it yet, but he did need her.
So now we are back. This is a beautiful place. This State park is divided into two parts. One where we are parked.
And another part over at the Spring headwaters, I hope this shot comes thru:
The next shots will be from the deck across in the center picture. The kids are getting out of the water.
One swimmer left in this 72 degree water, he must be from Wisconsin. LOL the center picture you are looking down 10’ into the springs. This is listed as some of the Clearest water in the WORLD. Using some gauge that is explained on the plaques. This spring produces a river. the input is 400 million gallons of pure water a day. This is the Rainbow river.
Seminole falls a small falls feeding the springs also.
We took time to walk the nature trail, called the yellow trail about 2.5 miles of nice Florida Flora.
I still don’t understand water. I stood at Niagara Falls, and wondered why it did not run out of water. I do the same with these springs. They amaze me.
We depart Rainbow tomorrow and meet up with Don & Evelyn at Three Flags.
Then we are on to another State park. for Christmas.
Thanks for going along with us. As I make this entry, I think of the difference from, the beautiful Northern TRIO: Mel, Darla & Cher’s Blogs. All showing winter wonderlands with the snow. The most beautiful Christmas pictures are COLD Christmas pictures. The Best Christmas Songs and stories, are cool to cold ones. But folks in the warm weather also have Christmas and enjoy the picture postcard pictures from the Beautiful North Country.
So let’s all sing and enjoy the Christmas Season.
How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then to rest afterward.
(I borrowed that Proverb from MA’s Blog. She digs out some of the best quotes!!)
I had a terrible mishap yesterday, I accidentally deleted 12,000 pictures, many of my cars. I managed to get a lot of them back but in no order, so I will probably be repeating myself.
1958 Caddy, it’s red and I love it. Sorta Christmassy.
