Summer time sendoff at the Springs

The Hubby and I took a couple of days off at the end of the week before the kids went back to school.  One of the days we went to the springs.  I don’t know why we haven’t been before.  It was beautiful, crisp and COLD and since it was a weekday….uncrowded.

The swimming part of the springs is concreted off, similar to a swimming pool…around the edges but still plenty of rocks, sand and algae on the bottom and crystal clear.  The swimming area is separated from the river with a lovely walkway with a jumping platform on one side and waterfall on the other side.

The restaurant portion offers AYCE pancakes for about $5.

Behind the restaurant are the remains of the original mill.


Swimming and jumping in super clear and crisp 70degree F water.


Sad to say the ole Fountain o’ Youth was bone dry.
