Last week, my husband and I went down to Florida to visit his parents, so of course we took the KCC Adventure Team with us. Well, not the entire team… Sophie stayed home. But Kylo Ren, Caster, and Lucy road tripped down with us and enjoyed lots of time out on the water. We went on three boat rides, to be exact!
The first day out on the boat, we took a 45-minute ride down to Silver Glen Springs. While the water in the river is dark, once you reach the Springs, the water turns crystal clear. It is beautiful!
There were lots of other boats, canoes, and people at the springs. It’s a great spot to anchor and hang out, so we did just that. We even got in the water and went swimming – Lucy and Kylo Ren included (video of Kylo swimming at the end of the post)! The crystal clear waters may look nice and inviting, but they were actually pretty chilly. Perfect for cooling off in the hot weather though.
We had to start heading home a bit earlier than we wanted to because there was a storm coming in. We actually had to pull off under some tree coverage for a little bit and let the storm pass by. Thankfully it never actually hit us, so we stayed dry.
When we got home, Kylo Ren and I worked on a puzzle. A Kylo Ren puzzle!
Then Kylo zonked out. He had exerted a lot of energy swimming, after all…
The next day, we just went out for a short evening cruise. It was relaxing and peaceful. The temperature was cooler, and we admired the sunset as we slowly idled down the river.
On the last morning of our trip, we took one final boat ride. Caster really seemed to enjoy this one the most. It was so much fun to watch him take in his surroundings, sniff the air, and enjoy the wind blowing through his ear tufties 🙂
Our trip to Florida really was the perfect summer vacation. It sure was hard to come home! We’ll be looking forward to the next trip for sure!
We hope you enjoy this short movie montage of our boat tours. Be sure to watch for Kylo’s swimming clip! 😀
