Spring Description

The spring flows up from below a limestone ledge in an estuary system. The water was clightly clearer than the surrounding brackish water, and a limestone wall/shelf was visible. The depth of the spring could not be determined visually. Fish were observed schooling in the area.


There was a chair near the spring, which is on private property. JF was guided to the spring by a local resident, who said the spring was sometimes used for swimming.
