There is a place about an hour north of Tampa Florida, where alligators, manatees, and turtles live. Mermaids live there too. And, for my son’s thirteenth birthday (he is also a Gemini), we gathered up our crew, dressed in our wackiest clothes and headed to Weeki Wachee State park.
I was really impressed with the park. First of all, it really is a wacky place. They have live mermaid shows. We were lucky enough to see the Little Mermaid, which is performed two or three times a day. It was really entertaining and definitely unlike anything I have ever seen. .
There is also a water park (my favorite ride was called the Pirates Revenge), a guided river boat cruise, nature trails, and kayaking. We spent the day there, had a picnic, and swam for hours in the springs. An added bonus.. park admission is really affordable and everything is included.. 🙂
We ended up staying until the park closed. So we had to have our singing and gluten-free cupcakes in the parking lot. It was a great day shared with my sister, my brother-in-law, my niece and nephew, my best friend Lisa and her awesome son Txanton (all of us moved from Hawaii to Florida at different times for different reasons, weird I know). Thanks to everyone for the Birthday magic….Happy Birthday Keone!!!! Woohoo! I love you!
