Good Fence at Wakulla Springs




Wakulla Springs is one of the largest and deepest fresh water springs in the world. The water temperature remains a relatively constant 70 degrees (F) year-round. On a day as hot as last Saturday was, how could I say no to my grandchildren when they wanted to cool off? I told them they could wade at the edge of the water since we had not brought their swim suits, but as you can see from the pictures, that didn't last long. They were drenched by the time we were ready to leave! I'm linking this post to Good Fences only because of the rope with the blue floats that is separating the swimming area from the deeper part of the river. That is sort of a fence right? It does let the alligators know to stay out of the swimming area. In the last picture, you can see my grandson waving to the people on the passing boat, which is one of the same boats we rode earlier in the afternoon.

Great photo's, children will always be children isn't it? They don't mind going wet as we adults do.....

Good job, Lois, keeping them out of the water. :-)

Cute shots of the grand kiddies playing in the water. I hope there were not any gators around. Water temps in the 70's sounds nice to me. Have a happy day!

You would never ever have gotten me in the water. Not with what you were showing two days ago...

Ida said...

That is an important fence for sure. The kids look quite happy and pleased about their water outing.

It's good that the gators obey the fence. ;-)

Oh what fun! I wish I were in that water right now -- it is SO hot in the afternoons.

Lowell said...

I remember those days. Barely, but I did the same stuff your grandkids are doing and it was great fun. Of course, I did that up in Minnesota where we didn't worry about alligators, just those black leeches! :)

Felicia said...

that is indeed a good fence.

Latane Barton said...

A fence is a fence, that's what I say. It helped keep those fun-loving children in safe water. They do look like they are having fun, don't they?

Gunn said...

Jack said...

Aren't you as sweet (and indulgent!) grandma!

Halcyon said...

I agree, that's a good fence!
