Theme Day - Funny Signs
This sign is located near the Lodge at Wakulla Springs State Park just south of Tallahassee. Henry the Pole Vaulting Fish can be seen performing his show through the windows of the glass bottom boats when the water is clear enough at the springs. The glass bottom boats were not running the day we visited, but I have been on them before and I can tell you first hand that Henry is very talented! I found a hilarious You Tube video featuring Henry and you can view it here. Be sure to turn up the sound because the guy doing the tour is just as funny as Henry!
The first day of the month is Theme Day for the City Daily Photo community.

Cool sign and picture!
Wakulla Springs........... Henry Jumps
If I find myself at Wakulla Springs I'll have to check out this fish.
Cute fish on the sign - reminds me of Starkist tuna commercials!
Sadly, the glass-bottomed boats rarely run anymore at Wakulla Springs. The water used to be crystal clear, but in recent years it has darkened (thought to be due to runoff from sewage systems) and the boat ride is canceled more often than not. I agree with you about the tour guides...some of them are fantastic. The best is Luke, and you can get a small sample of his jungle boat tour here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n53BVkTHGps&feature=related.
I believe Henry has a bright future.
I love to see a talented fish. He has a very cute face!
Oh too funny, Lois. MB

I'd like to know how they got that fish to do that!!!! How hilarious!
An Olympic hopeful!

A very nice and very funny sign!
I really believe "The Sky is the Limit" when you're having fun.
Great post, Lois. Have you heard about the fish that jumps in boats and spears people? They've actually killed some people. Probably wasn't Henry, though.
A pole vaulting fish would really be something to see, especially in a glass bottom boat.
He sounds like a very athletic and talented fish! Heehee!
That fish is really a clown!!
Very funny sign, and a sweet story too.
How absolutely hysterical! I'm so glad you included the link!
I love the name Wakulla! :-)
