Saturday was the last open house at Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River for this manatee season.
And we were there because it is such a great spot to see manatees and it was free! The park is usually only open to one tour operator but three times a year there is an open house and we try to make it to a couple of the events. We went to the open house in October and took son Darin and his fiancée Kathryn. This time our little 4-year-old grandson Jack reluctantly went along. (He really just wanted to go fishing with Grandpa off of our dock.)
After a week of chilly temperatures, Saturday was a pleasant spring day. Such a nice change. We arrived at the parking area about 10:30 am and there were already a couple of dozen people in line for the bus. But the buses run non-stop so it wasn’t long before we were at the boardwalk.
