Manatee

Just for m’lady Trouty (see her comment on Saturday’s blog), here’s a picture of a manatee…

Manatee

This one was having a doze in the manatee viewing area at Homasassa Springs State Park – we went there for lunch on the day we did the swimming with manatees experience. This was the best view of a manatee we had all day, as the water where we were swimming with them was so muddy, all we really saw was shapes moving in the water.

At least, they told us it was mud in the water – Purple Fred (Whom I Love Very Much) reckoned we were swimming in manatee poo, and I don’t really have any evidence to say she’s wrong.
