    Look closely into the waters of the Spring Run. Manatees basically look and move like big submerged logs. If they are there, it is basically because the waters outside of the Spring Run have gotten cold and they are waiting for better times. No SeaWorld shows here. If you see what looks like a submerged log out in the water in August ... it probably is a submerged log :-]

    When you reach the river, you will come to a boat dock. The Suwanee River is a large slow-moving river. Occasionally you will see a powerboat roaring up or down the water. Other times, you can just simply watch the waters and wonder whether Stephen Foster ever really saw the river he made songs about. There is bass, bream, pickerel, catfish and speckled perch waiting to be caught under the murky waters -- after you obtain a Florida freshwater fishing license, that is.

    Walk along the Spring Run down to the Suwanee River and discover a swamp of cypress, gum, ash and maple.
