Being this close to the Manatees was amazing.
Prior to this I’d only see their backs as they swam in the Intracoastal Waterway, usually hanging around the pilings of the bridges.
They are fascinating to watch even though they are rather ugly. Apparently the sailors of long, long ago called them ‘mermaids’ (well, that’s the story I heard). If that’s what they compared the woman of their dreams to, their ‘grogg’ must have gone ‘off’ or they were blind drunk!
