This summer, we've been spending many of our Saturdays here at Spring Creek in Marianna Florida, it's only about an hour's drive for us and it's unbelievable that we've only just found out about this spot on the creek this year, even though we've visited Marianna so many times before! We always knew about the crystal clear Merrit's Mill Pond, because you pass it along the main road through the town, and there is a park off of the highway at the spillway, but there's no real swimming access there, you can launch a canoe or tube from that point, but mostly it seemed people just fished there, so we thought there was no other access, or at least we never knew how to get access to the part of the creek on further down. Until one day my husband got curious and did some investigating. He did a little research on our computer and with some help from google maps satellite, he found the creek, and followed the creek on both ends, and looked for a cleared out area with parking, and he found one, then he followed that road to the highway, and figured out the road name and how to get there. What in the world did we ever do without the internet?! We were no doubt, lost a lot and asking for directions a lot too, I think.
After over 22 years of living in Florida, we are thrilled to still be finding new places to go and explore....This has quickly become our favorite place....we've made some wonderful memories here so far.....
Well, I hope you enjoyed relaxing a while with us on the creek!
Thanks for stopping over for a visit!
