I'm going to blame my bleary, photo editing eyes on the many typos and misspellings in yesterday's post. Digital photography was a wonderful invention but it requires much more work to cull through and edit!
So, we left Orlando and headed up to Ocala and Papa and Meme's house.
Weeki Watchee Springs never happened.
Can I just say that it was everything AND MORE that I had imagined as a kid?! I mean, MERMAIDS. ALIVE AND SWIMMING RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR NOSE!! Long before Ariel captivated kids, the mermaids of Weeki Watchee were swimming in the 74 degree waters of the natural spring. What's awesome about this place is that they are actually swimming in the springs so turtles and fish randomly swim by as they are performing.
These lovely peacocks greeted us when we arrived.
