The Way We Were Wednesday Weeki Wachee Springs
This is from the very early 1950's that is mom, and I think my oldest brother Dale, at Weeki Wachee Springs in Florida. Now part of a state park and much developed, it was an early tourist attraction with an underwater theater with plate glass windows into the clear spring water, and underwater performers. A much simpler time.
I have been there, several times, the last time being probably in the 80's. My grandparents had started spending time in Florida in the winters in the 1950's. This would have been before my grandfather left Ford and moved to the farm.

The memories of these springs and of Silver Springs in Ocala.... being from Ormond Beach I fondly remember them all!! Haven't been back since I moved to San Francisco over 25 years ago.....ReplyDelete
I understand Silver Spring closed as an attraction after a hurricane. I lived in Florida for about 20 years. Moved away 25 years ago.Delete
