Wordless Wednesday

Wakulla Springs, Florida

A month or two ago, Sue Damon and I started exchanging emails about using one of her beautiful photographs as part of a Wordless Wednesday.  Eventually, we agreed that the Wednesday prior to the 5K Run for the Friends (of Wakulla Springs) would be the best time.

Back then, it just seemed like a logical idea, to support a place that is near and dear to so many of us in this area.  Everything changed on April 20, when the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill occurred.

Now, more than ever, Wakulla Springs needs friends.

If you live here in North Florida, consider coming out and running or volunteering this Saturday, May 15, at 8:00 a.m. (the races begin with the 1 mile fun run). 

If you live elsewhere, visit this Facebook Page for information.

Stadiums are for spectators. We runners have nature and that is much better.

My running is on hold at the moment due to my pregnancy. Otherwise, I would totally be there! I will pass this along to all my runner friends. Such a great cause!

Those a great photos! I hope the event is a success. We've really done a number on our environment haven't we? :( Great post, Paula.
Thanks for stopping by and linking your WW post up at my place. Have a great day.
