Exploring the area, we found there are three rivers in the area that provide access to the Gulf. There has been much development and the rivers are lined with homes, marinas, restaurants and resorts. The place is much too developed for our tastes.
One day we went to the nearby Homosassa Wildlife Preserve, which is noted for its animal rescue activities. Most of the displays were new and included many of the native species of mammals, fish, birds and reptiles. Especially interesting was the “Fish Bowl”, which is a viewing structure submerged in a natural spring where you get the feeling of being right with the fish and manatee.
The rest of our stay was mostly spent exploring the area and lazing around the pool, reading and looking forward to moving on.
