A Little Serenity At Manatee
Winter transforms Manatee Springs.
In the summer, the main pool above hosts scuba divers, snorkelers, swimmers, and even tiny kids wearing floaty arm thingies.
In the winter, they shy away, even though the 120 million gallons of water that issues forth each day is always about 72 degrees F.
Sure, that's chilly on a 98 degree summer day, but in the winter, ... in the winter it feels divine.
Until you get out.
Ah, but that's life isn't? If it feels too good to be true, it probably is about to change dramatically.
Lief clung to the rocky shore and thanked Odin for delivering him from Moskstraumen.
You just never know what you'll find at Manatee in the winter.
