Fanning Springs State Park

We drove over to Fanning Springs State Park this week to enjoy nature.

 

I have lots of photos to share but I'll start with a walk down to the swimming area.

 

The water was crystal clear with shades of aqua and green.

 

We didn't swim but it sure looked tempting.

 

Maybe next time!

It looks beautiful there Diane. The water is so blue but I don't like the mucky bottom for walking in. lol I hope you have a great day. Hugs, Pam

Diane, I love those beautiful colors. I think I would be afraid to swim in out door waters...other than a swimming pool. Have you ever seen gators around there. ? Hope you are having some great times on your hikes. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

So pretty Diane! The water looks very inviting. Love the trees with the spanish moss hanging down. You are lucky to have such lovely weather so much of the year! Hope all is good. Still very busy here but trying to get in some sewing!

I can't even tell you how beautiful that water looks to me. Ours over here is nevr that blue and lovely (cause of the mangos) but now it is really bad because of the problems with dumping Lake Okechobee water for the sugar growers. It's really bad.
