We have a trolling motor on our canoe so we didn't even paddle. We just enjoyed the sights, sounds and scents of the forest. We made our way through Silver Springs State Park and into the Silver Springs theme park. I've visited this park twice and I just love it. It reminds me of an amusement park from the 1950's. When I'm walking through the park or riding on one of the glass bottom boats, I feel like I might run into the Brady family.
The canoe trip was so awesome. It is difficult to describe the beauty of the river. Sometimes, words just do not suffice so here are a few photographs:
|The water is so pure that you can see the bottom - up to 30 feet below.|
|Red Belly and Yellow Belly turtles bask in the sun along the river banks.|
|The river draws you into its magic.|
|A White Ibis.|
|The water from the springs is 99% pure.|
|One of God's amazing creatures.|
