Springs Please Momma?

Micah has been really wanting to go to the springs this winter. We went last year when it was cold and the warm springs were so nice. 

So this past Monday it was 44 degrees. Perfect day for a swim, right?

We decided to try a new spring, Poe Springs State Park. The boardwalk out to the springs is a quarter of a mile long. It was a beautiful walk and the boardwalk was so nice! We were excited to see the springs ahead!!

Well, I have to say we were a little disappointed as we rounded the corner and saw the springs. The set up was great and perfect for wading in. But the water was not a pretty blue, like other springs. It was an algae greenish brown. The steps were slick and dirty looking.  We weren't really a fan. 
Regardless, we had a great time together exploring a new place. We all decided this would be a perfect place for a homeschool picnic since they have large fields, volleyball courts and baseball fields. As well as picnic tables and pavilions.
So it's not our favorite spring, but the park was great. We'll go back soon!

  1. Forgive my northern ignorance, but how do you know what bodies of water have alligators and what is safe?
