Silver Springs ~ Tuesday's Show & Tail

On a Wednesday! So I'm a day late, lol!

Dad and I spent part of last Thursday at Silver Springs in Ocala, FL. I had not been there since 1983 when I was 11 and have been wanting to go for a while now. So, part of my tax refund went toward taking a day trip and that's where we went. Here are some of the critters we saw:

I will share more next time!

That's me on the left in blue! I was so skinny then. My brother is next to me.
It was an enjoyable day, but I was somewhat disappointed. You see, back in the day 1983, the Glass Bottom boat cruise was a lot longer and there were monkeys all over the place along the banks:

I really wanted to see the monkeys! There was also a space with Lloyd Bridges "Star" chair and Ivan Lors's Director Chair from the Tarzan set:

Not there anymore. :(

So, after spending over $60.00 on the entrance, $20.00 on lunch (a hot dog, water, reg drink, and a pulled bbq sandwich), $7.00 to park, and $45.00 in gas, I have decided to save my money next time and go somewhere else. Maybe Homosassa Springs!
