Rainbow Springs Swimming Area
On the day this photo was taken (a few weeks ago) the weather was coolish. Few people were at the park as it was midweek, and as I said, coolish. The water in the swimming area, which you see pictured, is always 72 degrees F (year-round). That's too cold for me but many younger people such as my grandchildren seem to have no problem with it.
If you look closely at the center of the photo, you will see a man swimming. His wife was also in the water, but off to the right, out of the picture. This swimming area is infested with alligators so one must be careful, but we saw no gators that day; just these two people, who upon further scrutiny, appeared to be in their 70s. I don't think that's very old anymore, but it's too old to be swimming in 72 degree water on a coolish day for crying out loud!
