Africa USA

At the top of Camino Gardens Boulevard in Boca Raton was Africa USA.

My first job in accounting was for Ray Homrich who had a CPA office there where it used to be. The attraction had a natural geyser that went off like clockwork. When the attraction close the geyser stopped. Funny thing.

They still had the remnant peacocks running around when it was in office. Our office was the office that had been Camino Gardens real estate office I think. Beautiful spot under the trees.

That was from 1970 or so.
