Fountain of Youth Springs

The spring isn't completely dry, but are very low. There is a conch shell tied to the posts to pull back the moss growing over the fountain. There's another spring nearby (Black Harry's Spring) that's a little more full for gathering water. A little underwhelming, but good tasting water.

Okay, though drinking from Black Harry's Spring completely reverses the effects of the Fountain of Youth spring. We heard.

Fountain of Youth

Small, dirty, unkempt, stagnant puddle, with a mean lady across the street yelling about her driveway.

Fountain of Youth

The Fountain of Youth is now no longer restricted, not by any sign at least. But you wouldn't want to drink the water anyway. It's completely green and gross. The small pavilion over it has been changed but is still there. No sign of a cup or anything else.
