Homosassa Springs Manatee refuge

This Florida State Park provides refuge for many injured animals, among them the manatee.
It was a beautiful day, so we drove down to see what the park was all about.
The manatee come to swim in the warm spring waters during the winter months, since they need warm water to survive.
Many fish cruise in the same waters.
The hippopotamus has his own pond, and "Lu" has celebrated his 57th birthday.
Cute turtles have their own space in the park.
As do the alligators.
The flamingos are very colorful.
Many other kinds of birds are rescued and cared for at the park.
Fun manatee water fountain.
Large areas for the birds.
Of course, we had to stop off at Johnson's Bakery in Perry and at the Biscuit Barn in Hamosassa for some food!
