Thread: Ginnie

    According to friends in High Springs, reversal has been documented by river debris (leaves, twigs) being found a distance back into the cave after past floods.

    Whether or not reversal occurs depends on BOTH the river level AND the aquifer level. River level must exceed aquifer level to reverse.

    Take only photos, leave only bubbles, kill only time.

    From the Ginnie facebook:

    The flood waters have dropped about 8 feet, but we still have about 2 more feet to go. Overall, things are looking good, and we're super close to seeing that gorgeous crystal clear spring water again!
    We are *hoping* to open by next Friday ( 10/6), possibly sooner if conditions improve quickly. We will let everyone know our opening date by Tuesday (10/3).

    I've decoed in the eye when the water was high (not to today's levels, anyway), barely making the 20 ft depth on the ceiling in the cavern. I guess diving now would have you deco mid water somewhere in the eye. Not a big deal for a few minutes, but something to consider if planning for lots of deco.

    Hope you named her GATOR ! That the American way !

    No, she wouldn't have liked that, even as a nickname, but it's not a bad 70's Burt Reynolds movie.

    I did a quick fly by of Ginnie today from my boat. It looks like clear water is flowing from the eye. You can see the spring pretty but from the surface it looks very green.

    The Ear is not visible from the surface at all.

    I will be interested to see if there is any trash or tree branches that washed down into either one.
