    We decided to take advantage of the GORGEOUS day and go on a little adventure today. We ended up at Suwannee Springs, which is a very historical part of my town and very fun to visit! Here is some background on what exactly Suwannee Springs is:

    This is what it USED to look like... back in the day :p Not taken by me, obviously. LOL

    This is what it looks like today. The river is EXTREMELY low, so that means the Springs are extremely low as well... we haven't had rain, hurricanes, etc., so they've really suffered.

    To show you how low it is... the river usually flows through this right here.

    We then went on a short uphill hike to climb on the old historic bridge. It has tons of graffiti on it and I found one I liked :p

    We walked down to the river and Harleigh decided it was the perfect day for a swim! That water was cold too.

    This is what I have to deal with. She was trying to push me over... she also attempted this while I was in the water.
