This is a picture of the "run" or the waterway the spring spills into. The run feeds the St Johns River, which oddly flows south to north.
The water is crystal clear as you can see. The turtle is swimming in a large school of gar that just sit in the run waiting for food to come by
A smaller manatee comes up for air
They look like gray logs, but these are resting manatees. They are all through the run. The water is beautiful, isn't it?
Here is a look at a mother and her baby. The baby is riding on her back. Sooo cute! We saw a baby nursing up close last year!
Can you see the bird in this picture? Click the photo and you will! Most of those dark shadows are manatees!
If you take a picture underneath these palms it looks like a huge asterisk or flower!
Another bird! Do you see this one?
A little fun for daughter and granddaughter!
Hope you enjoyed Blue Springs!
Have a sunshiney day!!
