Crystal River Manatee


Being in the water with the FL Manatee never gets old. Over this past presidents weekend, 7 fellow water lovers and myself spent some time with the Manatee in Crystal River, FL. The Manatee were welcoming us into their world and rewarded us with a few great passive interactions that they turned into physical encounters. I do not know who enjoyed the interactions more the manatee or the humans. I have been going down to Crystal River for better part of 15 years and never have ever gotten out of the water and said that was boring or I have done this too many times. Each time I am in the water, if I get to touch or not, it feels like it is the first time. Some of my fellow water lovers got back home and contacted me asking what the dates are for next years trip as the rest of their familys want to go.
