Memorial Day Weekend in Florida necessitates cold drinks, water, and sunshine. A few years ago we hit up some West Coast beaches while enjoying Sarasota & the Ringling Museum. This year, we went to Blue Spring State Park, the winter home of Florida manatees, with a few friends. We got to the park by 8 am and there was already an incredibly long line; it took us almost an hour to get into the park. Tub rentals are $5 for the first hour and $2.50 for every extra hour.
We floated around for a bit enjoying the warmth of the sun along with the chill of the 70 degree water (freezing for life-long Floridians, but perfect for manatees). After a few hours, we went to Black Hammock in Oviedo for some yummy gator lunches.
