Met a family from church at a sanctuary of theirs in the Ocala National Forest. They camped over night at the Juniper Springs Park and I showed up in the morning to canoe the run.
It was four hours of absolute fun in about the best natural surroundings you can get in creation.
The water was a crystal clear delight and we canoed and swam for mile after mile.
Very happy to have been a part of this great time of fellowship. We all die so it is very important to live in the meantime. Not just all by our lonesome either but with our brothers and sisters.
You should check out the springs for yourself. It is about a 2.5 hour drive from Tampa and will cost you $5 per person entrance fee and about $30 to rent a canoe.
By the time your finished paddling you will be ready for a nap!
