Blue Spring CampgroundReserveAmerica is the corporation that now handles many of the state and federal reservations for campgrounds. It costs 10 dollars for each reservation. For people who camp 14 days at the same spot it is a fine way to get a wanted campsite. For folk like us, it makes life more expensive or more difficult. Blue Spring Campground is the perfect example. I wasn't sure when we would arrive and didn't want to waste the campground fee ($27.00) for a day we might not be arriving. So when I looked last week at ReserveAmerica and Blue Spring had lots of empty sites we decided not to make a reservation.
Today is Lew's Birthday! First thing in the morning is a walk to see the Manatees.Blue Spring is a natural spring that is 72 degrees warm. Manatees like that and are protected. Makes a nice mile roundtrip walk to see them in the morning.
