Looks like a lovely day, and I love turtles! We are a bit cooler due to the winds we've been having. It's not fun when the wind blows, and my allergies are reminding me of that lately! :-)

Rainbow Springs looks beautiful! I'm from South Georgia and when I was young we went to Silver Spring. The trip in the glass bottom boat was the highlight of the trip. Such incredibly clear water! Thanks for prompting the memories. Nancy

Creative Breathing said...

What a fun post! It is so cold and rainy here in Ohio, it seems as though warm weather will never come. You what is so funny to me in these photographs, are the people in their bathing suits sunning in a park like area. I've never seen such a thing! Only in Florida? Too funny! Have a lovely spring week ahead! Elizabeth
