We have finally reached Florida! It was great to finally reach this state after pushing the miles this past week. Our joy on arriving here on Friday however, was short-lived when we realized how hot and muggy it is here. And it did not help that a few scattered showers moved through on Friday, it just made everything wetter! However, we did pick a great area to park in for over the week-end before we have to move on. Silver Springs is the area of the world's largest formation of springs. We had a great day on Saturday touring Silver Springs (touted as "natures theme park"), where the main springs is located. It amounts to a zoo of sorts with the usual caged animals, as well as some animals and birds running freely through the park. There are many wild animal shows which are informative as well as entertaining. My favorite was the bird show which had birds flying low over the audience. In our travels we have seen the red tail hawk, but yesterday we had the experience of seeing his red tail feathers up close. We also saw the smallest hawk to be found in the wild, which is the kestrel. Also of interest to me was a variety of owls.
