Jan 17, 2014 - Catching up

We have been busy the last few weeks touring around the area with my Sister and her husband. We have visited State Parks and Wildlife Refuges. We have seen Bald Eagles several times, once as we were driving it was swooping down close to the road behind us, would have loved to have gotten pictures but couldn't. We visited Manatee Springs State Park, the water is so clear and warm, felt like bath water,the Manatees' come from the Gulf, swim up the Swanee River this area for the warm water in the Winter. We did see several come to the top of...

Jan 2, 2014 - Visit to Homosassa State Wildlife Park

Spent about three hours at this Wildlife park, so many beautiful Birds and Animals. The Hippo was a little out of place, he was adopted by this park and Florida Governor made him a citizen of Florida. The Flamingos were really loud,they like to chatter, I didn't know they were so tall either. This was a great Park, well worth the drive.

May 7, 2013 - wonderful day in Homosassa Springs

We are staying in a very nice RV park in Homosassa Springs for 2 nights. We visited Weeki Watchi Springs and saw the mermaid show in the morning and then went to the Homosassa Springs Wildlife Center in the afternoon. The state has taken over both attractions, which had run out of money, and is in the middle of rebuilding both things. They still have a lot of work to do at Weeki Watchi but the mermaid show is still going. Homosassa Springs Wildlife Center was a lot of fun. All of the manatees have left for the summer except for the 2...

Feb 25, 2013 - hoping for some sun!

We are back to travelling after a few days break in Yuma to visit Dad for his 85th birthday. It was great for Wayne to see Dad and Ian - they had a lot of fun catching up, visiting Mexico and of course hitting the flea markets. They went out for a birthday dinner with a gang of Dad’s Yuma pals and coffee breaks every morning with the Blue Sky bunch. Wayne even got in a short visit with the Hubb’s and Handford’s in Mesa while waiting for his flight back to Florida. That was a real treat on a long travel day. I (Donna) stayed in Tallahassee...

Dec 27, 2010 - Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park

These road trips that we are taking lead to learning all kinds of helpful information. Yesterday we spent the afternoon at Beef O'Brady's, a chain restaurant that carries the NFL ticket. For those who don't know what the NFL ticket is, Direct TV offers all the NFL football games and so when you go to a place that has it, all the games are shown on the TVs that surround the place. We went to see the Patriots play the Buffalo Bills. Unfortunately, it wasn't much of a game, as the Patriots won easily. Today we went to a Florida State Park that...

Apr 7, 2008 - the first days

Well, the first week was a shake down cruise. We made our way north to Homasassa Springs, Fl to a little park called Turtle Creek. It was a great place to settle in to our new home. We figured out the big awning. I got the huge pile of stuff out of the shower - everything from Fed Ex envelopes to hair clips - got it set up - our new shower is wonderful! I gave Abby a bath and got out the clippers and gave her a little trim. We took Mike's bike to the repair shop.... oh yah, on the way to Homasassa a car pulled up beside us and did a...

Jan 26, 2008 - Manatees at Homosassa Springs

Dear Family & Friends, Well today we were tourists again. This trip took us to the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. This park is home to many wild animals, native to Florida that have been injured, and could not survive in their normal enviroment. Probably the most fasinating of them all was the manatee. We had never seen a manatee up close and personal. The park has a room below the water that gave us the opportunity to see the manatees grazing on lettus, as well as viewing several species of fish. A few facts I learned about...
