Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park

Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park
While most of my friends have been experiencing winter type weather, here in Florida it has been in the upper 70s or low 80s with lots of sunshine.  Definitely no complaints from me.  Peggy, Dave and I have been out seeing the sites.  One day we went to Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park.  It was a gorgeous day!  We enjoyed a short boat ride out to the park and spent the day.  A park ranger gave information about the manatees and we were able to see a couple.  Sorry, no decent picture of one - yet!

Lou - the hippo.  The only non-Florida species in the park.
A former movie star about to celebrate his 53rd birthday.
 This is one of those places you could go several
times and see something new each time.
Pink Flamingos

Bald eagle - many of these
animals were injured.  All the
eagles we saw, had lost a wing.
