The next big event in Old Homosassa is the Cobia Tournament this weekend.
Our crew last year–William, Jon, Jeremy and Terry.
We returned home yesterday to discover that otters had turned the kayak dock into their personal sunning platform.
Since otters are a lot more photogenic than manatees, Terry and I headed down to check it out. At first we only saw one but then spotted two more. The third quickly slipped down the kayak ramp into the water before I could get a picture, but it stayed close by under the dock noisily chomping on fish.
You might think this is a picture of my sweet Maggie, but not true. While she was on the seawall looking adorable and I grabbed my camera, it wasn’t for a photo of her, but what was going on behind her. Look closely and you will see small ripples. That is a manatee.
I usually notice them first because of the small ripples, a snout sticking out, or a large figure eight shape just under the water.
Still look like an odd gray rock formation!
