Silver River

So having escaped the Swamp Monsters of the Suwanee in North Florida we headed a little way south to the Silver River.


The silver is different to the Suwanee - the latter being a 'Blackwater' river, the water appears very dark due to the amount of vegetation it runs through in the Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia. The Silver is a crystal clear spring fed river, which is great to spot fish and turtles and even 'gators cruising under your boat!
There are even monkeys here - these are rumoured to have been left from when they filmed Tarzan movies here in the Johnny Weismuller days, but apparantly they simply swam off the zoo island at the head of the spring!
