[QUOTE=LittleMissMagic;1039652]Yeah, still Florida water is supposedly full of bacteria.
However, they still allow people to ski, water ski, or tube in the lake if they wish to pay the hefty price. And even though the beaches say “no swimming,” people will still stick their feet in.
If you want to get freaked out, here’s a good article to read: The Disney Wedding Blog: Reminder: Stay Out of Florida Lakes!!!
But I think that as long as you don’t drink the water or have an open wound, you’ll probably be okay.[/QUOTE]
You can water ski and such because you’re out in deep water and you don’t touch the bottom of the lake. The bacteria lives in the sandy bottom and gets stirred up into the water when something like feet step all over the sand. I think that’s why they don’t allow swimming in that sense.
Again, this is what I’ve read, I’m no master at this stuff! :laugh:
