Lady in the Lake

Young ladies are always found underwater (between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.) at Weeki Wachee Spring, a tourist attraction in Brooksville, Fla. They breathe through submerged air hoses, nibble apples, bananas (in season), watermelons and drink soda pop (by blowing into the bottle) while 165 million gallons of water, at a constant temperature of 74.2°, boil up from 137.5 feet every 24 hours. Only once has a young lady drifted, ethereal as Ophelia, past the underwater window in her nightie; Not part of her act, it was done by Kay Jones so a photographer could take this lovely hot-weather picture.
