A  nice  day  to  get 
out  and  about...

Sweetwater Wetlands  Park 
south  Gainesville
Birding  or  painting ..
a perfect  day  for  either.
And  before  you  ask ...
the paint  and  canvas
do not belong to me..
a local artist was kind enough 
to share her work.

nostalgia ...

a  place  from  the  past 
 that  will  always  
bring  back  memories  
of   picnics  and  swimming
in  the  Withlacoochee  River.
to  be  honest ,
as a child  I never  knew
the name of the river..
we  simply  said  we
were going to blue springs.
Everyone  knew  the
Blue  Springs  Road
 (   State Road 6  ) 
and  the  turn  off  for the 
spring  was  the  third  little
'bridge' at the  
Madison / Hamilton County line 
But  those  were  simpler  times..
long  before  the State Park system
began  managing  the  area.
