More at Blue Springs

A Sea Turtle
Her babies...

The whole family! The big one had her back foot out the whole time - I'm not sure why!


An interesting bird - I had to use 48x zoom to get him, so it's not very clear.



More manatee..... there were literally tons of them. I'd say we saw at least 100.





The Manatee (Sea Cows)


Some big fish in the springs. (This is Blue Springs - another hot spring)




This one swam right by the dock!



This is by far the clearest picture I got.




Hot Springs

The hot springs ran the sugar mill where we had breakfast. The water is always 72*.


A little "falls"


A different angle of the sugar mill.



A tree in the yard!!!!!!!!! (The green on top of the branches is ferns.)





Breakfast at the Sugar Mill

Grandma and Grandpa
Wouldn't know who this is

They brought you batter and you got to fry your own pancakes there at your table. They gave you choices of all kinds of things that you could put in them - blueberries, choco. chips, pecans, etc.


This is the outside.









Cowboy?

We found a Western store, and Tony dressed up.
Needless to say, we didn't buy everything because it would have amounted to over $350!!!


Beach Pix




I like this one.

Melody Norris (an old friend who happened to be visiting)

We went for a ride and this is the horse that I was on. His name is Big Boy and he's a 16hh Tennessee Walker. He's definintely the biggest TW I've ever seen, but boy was he nice to ride!






It was awesome to be able to spend the day with these girls!
