Barbara Manatee

The whole time we were in Florida the weather was SPECTACULAR!!! It was perfect, but toward the end it chilled only slightly...which was to our advantage.
We decided on one of these days to take the kids to Tampa Electric to their free manatee viewing site. The manatee swim into the inlet when the water is below 68 degress. They have an online camera that you can control so we used that before we hit the our preview there were a TON so we got ready and left!
When we got there Emmah was excited...Jake not so much, but as we began to see some he joined in the excitement! We went out on the long dock and saw some there, then headed in after a bit.
We then saw there was another viewing dock and thought we should head up there...when we got there you could see 50 or more of was AWESOME!!
There were baby ones and rather large ones as well.
Here's a little video of our manatee fun:
