Homasassa Springs

Homasassa Springs has a large collection of wild and resident birds, crocodiles and of course, manatees. When we visited they had five female manatees that live in the Park. The ladies are protected from wild manatees by grates that can go up and down depending on various conditions of the areas. As I mentioned before, I really find these manatees peaceful and beautiful.

Homasassa Springs is also home to a hippo named Henry. The day we visited turned out to be Henry’s birthday, for which they gave him a new tire to play with.

Indian Shores Seacoast Sea Bird Sanctuary

As the name implies, we also visited a sea bird sanctuary. They had a great deal of pelicans there as well as tother sea birds native to the Florida area.

We also got a chance to walk along the beach shores and saw some wild birds as well.
