My cousin, Suet, came all the way from California to visit us in St Augustine. Since it was much too hot to go sailing, we decided it was best to take a little road trip to Ginnie Springs. Normally, we hear, the place is packed full of people just tubing and drinking, but luckily for us (as it was weekday), we didn't encounter too many people, just a bunch of college kids here and there. It was a 2 hour drive from St Augustine, and it was well worth it as the springs were beautiful. The water was ice cold, but it was some of the clearest, bluest water I've ever seen.
