Maggie and Manatees

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.

 We’ve had many manatees in the canal this spring.  But, as I’ve posted before, manatees do not photo well, they just look like big gray rocks.

I usually notice them first because of the small ripples, a snout sticking out, or a large figure eight shape just under the water.

This is actually a picture of two manatees!
The canal is a very popular manatee place. They come back here to have babies and make babies!

Still look like an odd gray rock formation!



On the Road

I was just thinking that I need to plan a road trip.  But then remembered I just got back from one!  And haven’t posted those pictures.  How can I be planning before posting?  Anyhow, here’s some snaps from my trip to Cedar Key with the mermaids.  Yes, mermaids, and they are not my imaginary friends!

Michelle and I hit the road in the appropriate road hitting car!
This is where all the cool mermaids stay when visiting Cedar Key!
