The Daily Post’s Daily Prompt today is: If there were a real Fountain of Youth, would you drink the water?
I just couldn’t help respond because I have been to the Fountain of Youth, I did drink the water and it was horrible. The Fountain of youth is in Saint Augustine, Florida in the Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park. This is a beautiful park full of gardens, peafowl, culture and history. I went back in 2008 and unfortunately, this is one the folders that’s been lost. We’re going back in March 2016 and I’ll post my photos then as part of the “Spotlight on Florida” series.
If you get to northeast Florida make this park a priority destination. Drink the water. It’s horrible, tastes like sulfur. How many can actually say they’ve drank from the Fountain of Youth. And it’s not so much that you live forever but that you lived through drinking it. You can even buy it to bring home.
The water may not make you younger but time walking through the gardens may make you feel younger.
