Weeki Wachee Springs

Weeki Wachee Springs State Park has plenty of kitsch, but fun kitsch. It was a mere thirty minute drive from our house to their parking lot, yet we had never visited before today. 

The enthusiastic audience made the mermaid show a lot of fun, and the excited and precocious children got everyone excited about the creatures we saw on the river cruise.

We didn't even mind braving the chilly spring waters to do our own mermaid show.

Rainbow River Swim

This morning I was lucky enough to swim the Rainbow river with an adventurous crowd. I heard conflicting reports regarding the distance: somewhere between 3.4 miles and 4.5 miles, but I was sore and tired at the finish. Of course, it helped that we swam downstream.
