The Krewe of Venus, established in 1965, is the second oldest Krewe in Tampa, Florida. It is a social organization established to be a part of the Bay Area Krewe Festivities occurring during the late winter/early spring months and continuing on a lesser scale throughout the year. It is one of many social groups in the Bay area using the designation of Krewe.
The Weeki Wachee River is a river in Hernando County, Florida. It flows 7.4
miles westwards from Weeki Wachee to the Gulf of Mexico at the Weeki Wachee estuary. The spring is the surfacing point of an underground river, which is the deepest naturally occurring spring in the United States. It measures about 150 feet (46 m) wide and 250 feet (76 m) long, and daily water averages 170 million gallons (644 million liters). The water temperature is a steady 74.2 °F (23.4 °C) year-round. Often times you will see American Bald Eagles, River Otters and West Indian Manatee as you paddle down the river.
It was a pleasure to take this group out for a day of fun on the river. Everyone was full of excitement and energy. Before I knew it we were all on the river and we quickly noticed many were far from experienced paddlers. We took time with those that needed some instruction and others were free to paddle down the river with our other guides.
We stopped often to play, many guests brought water guns and the
rope swings were a big hit on such a warm day! I love taking groups like this
out for a day on the river. Watching persons of all ages get away from the hustle
and bustle of the daily grind come out here and play is a joy. So many do not take the time to see how beautiful Florida is!
