That's a lovely shot. You are quite the sleuth, finding these things around the county.
Your blog is so great The Pic is giving us an great idea Painting Company
This skeleton of the spring house is a grim, but useful reminder of what used to be. Good shot.
wonder if anyone still uses the healing springs...
according to the story i read texwis, someone had the water tested and said "the people who drank the water would be very happy, but would probably be dead in about 10 years because the water had 100 times the dose of lithium recommended". There is a metal lid over the spring inside the spring house but it can be easily moved, as we moved it to take a peek inside!
Too bad. I bet it was nice in the day.
I'll bet that was something way back when. I'm surprised that there is anything left after all this time.Re your comment on the parade: I was using the word, "parade," in its most generic sense...there is a constant parade of golf carts around the town squares (Spanish Springs and Lake Sumter Landing) every single day. Some days there are more golf carts that other days and this was one of the latter. We just stood on the corner and watched them come - one after another! Amazing!
Oh how I would love to soak in a hot spring at this moment.
This is a sad story, but a wonderful picture.
Looks like it could use a little love.
Great story lovely picture, how did you find this location? Virginia is so amazing, what part of VA is this spring located in?
this is down here in botetourt county, in blue ridge. i had seen in it our little yearly magazine called "botetourt living" and wanted to find it. i really want to go check it out in the spring time! i was telling a friend of mine who is starting out taking senior pics what an awesome location that would be in the spring for pics! i think i'm going to have her do my daughter's pics there :)
Hi! I'm so happy you've stopped by and always enjoy your comments :)
