Given this name in 1539 by the Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto.
He was searching for the legendary Fountain of Youth. The natural springs

Hi Sophie,
I noticed via your blog that you have a strong interest in Florida's nature. I would like to invite you to view my blog (and website):

This is very interesting. - Now I could just kick myself. - Lived in Daytona Bch. for 7 yrs., & as many times as I went over to the gulf coast (had an aunt & uncle in Venice and a dear friend in Tampa) I never visited these springs. Oh well, maybe some day I'll get down that way again.
Sophie, I wish you a wonderful Christmas celebrating the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ,
and a very happy and prosperous New Year.
Lovingly in Jesus, G G :)
