Weekly Shot: Cool down in Florida Springs

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It’s just the beginning of April…The temperature rises to 85° in Florida. To visit one of the springs will be an ideal option for the weekends! I did not do any watersports(I was filled with regrets,though) when I was there. My mind was seized by the springs. My eyes could not turn away. I was not able to escape from the beauty of water, never.
