Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park

While we were in the area, we decided to check out Wakulla Springs, home of the largest and deepest freshwater spring in the world. Several Tarzan movies with Johnny Weissmuller were filmed there - as well as "Creature From the Black Lagoon."

The Wakulla Springs Lodge was built in 1937. I was awed by the painted ceiling. 

One of my favorite shots.

Back at the Bed and Breakfast, we discover a book about the ceiling - showing each of the pictures and as much history about each as is known.

I have to include at least one bird from the park! This is a beautiful Northern Parula hiding in the bushes. Their song filled the air - happy little birds.
