After we ohhed and ahhed at the cuteness of the manatees, we took a guided boat tour down the St. John's river -- which was fabulous! The guide told us all about the animals and the eco system of the area.
It was a perfect day, not a cloud in the sky and in the mid 60's. A wonderful day off - now back to work tomorrow!
Here are some photos from our day if you'd like to a take a peek!
Manatees are so wonderful. I understand the desire to hug.
what great pics! I loved seeing all the Hawaii photos.
Those underwater animals are hard to photograph, the water was ripply yesterday so it was even harder, better when it is glassy. Every year the photos look the same, but every year I still take them! LOL!
I showed the pics to my hubby and his reply was typical of us, "Woogies!!" There's something very healing about communing with gentle creatures like dolphins, turtles, manatees and the like out in nature. It wipes away any worries you have and takes you back to a happy childlike place. I think your photos express that. I got all nostalgic looking at them. :o) Thanks for sharing!
