No trip to my sister Maria's place in Florida is complete without a trip to one of the many springs in her area.

This is Gilchrist Blue Springs.

Any guesses how it got its name???

In the summertime, this platform is packed with people who jump off the end...

Seanna's done it...and I think she would've jumped right in that day if she had been prepared and if it wasn't so chilly.

Let's be honest...the cold would not have deterred this girl from diving right in!  She just didn't have her swimsuit nor did we have the time...

You can barely make him out, but a paddleboarder was coming our way.

It truly would be a fun place to canoe or kayak.  Maybe another day...

The natural spring flows into the Sante Fe River, which is the river our rental house was on.  Maria and Barb were absorbing all the details...
