March 20, 2008 - Silver Springs Theme Park, Part 1

Bill and Helen have annual passes for Silver Springs Park, which is the original theme park in Florida and only five miles from the campground.  It is known for its glass bottom boats, animals and Saturday concerts.  The four of us went to see the park March 20th, which turned out to be a great day weather wise, sunny and in the low 70s.

Silver Springs reminds us of the St. Augustine Alligator Farm, which we visited November 14, 2003.  It has almost as many types of crocodilians as St. Augustine.
