    I remember seeing acts like this when I was a child in central texas in an aquifer fed natural spring. The drinking under water was always a hit. :-)

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called People in and around water, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    Looks a lot like Ginger Stanley, but hard to tell. She was more likely to be found at Silver Springs or, during underwater filming of Creature from the Black Lagoon, at Wakulla.
