BLUE SPRINGS STATE PARK

Yesterday we hired a *pontoon boat*and sailed the St John River in Deland which is about 45 minutes from Orlando

We saw lots of wildlife during the day including many alligators, turtles and a whole array of birds

We were also lucky enough to see a Manatee when we stopped off and moored at Blue Springs State Park
