Jan 7th … Swam with the Manatees

Drove to Crystal Spring to River Ventures to go swim with the Manatees. They said the Manatees are related to the elephants. Very gentle creatures that feed off the grass on the bottom.


In the last photo on the right you can see a baby Manatee nursing from its mother. I was surprised they nurse from teats located behind the mothers flipper. I met up with my friend m, Maggie, who I met on the East Coast of Florida. We went out to lunch at Crumps Landing. It an amazing jewel with live music located on Homossasa River.

Wishing you all a great evening!

It was so nice having Lani stop to visit me in CRYSTAL RIVER (not Crystal Springs). Just in case any of your followers go crazy trying to find this place in their travels. So many springs to enjoy so little time.

I don't know why I wrote Crystal Springs...I knew it was Crystal River. It must have been because I loved Kayaking that river a lot and I had "River" on my brain. Thanks for correcting me.
