This bed and breakfast inn was built over a swift flowing creek in Crystal River, Florida. The humidity is intense here and the loud sounds of bugs and critters are truly “swamp like”.
I was expecting to see alligators, but this is no longer the Everglades. Perhaps they are here though. It certainly feels like it.
Crystal River is located along the Gulf of Mexico nearly halfway between Tampa Bay Tallahassee. It is remote, but very green in this part of Florida. Many of the surrounding communities have been hit hard by the weather elements. Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and heavy humidity have taken a visual toll on the numerous small towns in this region. Times look tough here and this section does not appear to be a “tourist section” of Florida. No beaches, condos or Disney World.
