I just completed this oil painting titled "Heron at DeLeon Springs".

Anyway, on this particular trip we went on a ecological/historical boat tour at DeLeon Springs. The tour went from DeLeon Springs State Park into the waters of Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge. This little heron was only a sampling of the kind of beauty we saw that day.
We'll be going back sometime to swim in the year round 72 degree Fahrenheit water. And maybe to try the famous pancakes at the Old Mill House. That requires getting there early, unless you want to wait.
Did you know that DeLeon Springs was once billed in the 1880's as a kind of fountain of youth? You can be sure that I dipped my feet in just in case!
