Boulware Springs Waterworks



Apparently Boulware Springs is the reason why the University of Florida is in Gainesville.  I have read that the city promised the university free water from said spring.  I came across the spring on my way home from La Chua the other day.  The spring is a 4th magnitude spring and the plant has been turned into a small museum. The water was all jewel tones and stillness.  So inviting on such a hot, muggy day. There was even a turtle there serving as sentry.
