Another Spring in NC Florida. This one is said to be 580 ft. deep and apparently they allow divers. They do restrict them to 60 ft though. I for one do not think I would ever be brave enough to do this. Even if I was an excellent swimmer/diver. What say you? Would you dive 60 feet into this spring?

I never took up SCUBA diving, but both my sons did when they were young men. They have dived in several of the springs in Fla. They both loved it, said they saw big catfish that no one would even imagine existed down there!

To answer your question, I would have dived in those springs if I had ever taken up diving when I was younger, but not at the age I am now! 

Which spring is this? My sons may have dived in it years ago.

It is at Ichetucknee Springs State Park the one they call the Blue Hole.

Depends on the alligator population. ?

I don't think Alligators like spring water too much as it is a consistent 72 degrees. I bit chilly for gators. My fear would be the spring would suddenly become a sink hole.

Moon was really nice last week. Tested my new scope on the moon as well and accidentally saw a bird flying across the moon.

I'm always amazed at the detail you can see when the moon is magnified, especially with a good scope. Be sure to check it out when it's not quite full, too. Believe it or not, the brightness of a perfectly full moon can actually make some of the finer details harder to see.
