Lafayette Blue Springs in Mayo, Florida Jul 1, 2016 - When we visited Lafayette Blue Springs this week we had the place pretty much to ourselves! It was great. There was a couple of people that stopped by and then left, but for the most part we didn't have to share it with anyone.
Lafayette Blue Springs- You Should Go There Jun 11, 2015 - Summertime in Florida is hot hot hot, and a wonderful remedy for the heat is a dip in one of the many fresh water springs which bubble up from our underground aquifer. Trips to the springs create a conundrum, as it's great to go for a day trip but sad to stay for such a brief time.
