We went to Crystal River this weekend to do a little fishing and see the manatees. Every November the manatees swim south for the winter and call the warm waters of the Florida coast home. Swarms of people flocked to the water to catch a glimpse of these gentle giants. The manatee did not disappoint.
It was so warm and the kids wanted to swim so badly.
Brady (my nephew) got brave and stripped down
to his underwear to jump in. It didn't last long for him!
National Geographic was here taking pics for a special!
The manatee is docile, curious and friendly.
This one came up to our boat Saturday and stayed with us all the way up the canal.
He loved our trolling motor!

Citrus County and the city of Crystal River have saved this amazing habit for the manatees.
