Wall Springs

Yesterday was such a nice sunny day that we wanted Sherry to see Wall Springs.  It is a very nice park with the Gulf water mixing with the mineral spring water coming out of the ground.
This place use to be popular back in the 40's when people would come from all over the USA.
Of course back then they had a hotel and the spring fed a nice swimming pool, but that has long been gone.
The sidewalk leads out to the spring.
After a very short walk you arrive at the spring that comes bubbling out of the ground.
The water flows out that looks like a lake with bridges across in several places.
There are large fish in the water, but no fishing within the park.
Yes and even a few ducks that swim in the water.
The spring water and the salt water mixing out into the Gulf.  You have plenty of places within the Park to take photos.
Sherry really had a good time watching the pelicans diving into the water for fish. Her camera just was snapping away and so was mine.
There are benches through out the Park to sit and rest.

After walking taking photos we were past time to have dinner. Earlier in the day I was online checking out the restaurants with good reviews so off we went to one. I could already taste the Calzone by looking online, but when we got there they were closed on Mondays. So we went to another one in the strip mall and what do you know it was closed on Mondays also.
We were wanting spaghetti by that time so Nancy says lets go in New Port Richey town to the one we talked about for some time. We saw the sign and pulled into the parking lot and looked at the building the sign on the window read something about being a hair salon. Nancy says it must be out at the back of the building. So out to the back no restaurant.  By that time we were really getting hungry we head to the Leaning Tower of Pizza. Arriving there the parking lot was full of cars we said it looks like everyone came here since it was open. Parking the car we saw the sign out front(no wonder it was full)Special for the day Pasta all you can eat $5.25 yeah.
We order our spaghetti with meat sauce and thought because it was a all you can eat it would be served in smaller plates but oh no when the waitress brought it out it was a large plate full.
All three of us ate until we were full and couldn't finish the first plate.
A very relaxing day of being out and walking.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
