When I was little, my grandparents moved to Florida. We visited with them, but I can not remember ever seeing manatee. I know that I really wanted to though.

This trip, we were able to see a lot of them. I am not sure what the total was, but we enjoyed watching them most everyday we were there.

Allan figured out that there was a drip in these waterlines, so the manatee would hide under the dock for fresh water. It was fun watching them.

While standing on the dock, I realized that there was a manatee just under where I was standing. He flipped his tail and startled me, it was a lot closer than I had thought!

We know there was at least one momma and baby. We could distinguish at least three other ones. The kids insisted they were all either “Barbara” or “Bill”.

One thought on “Manatee”
