Gentle Giant: Manatee

The other day the boys and I went fishing on the pier with a group of homeschoolers. It was a beautiful day and felt good to get out and enjoy nature. I've always found the pier a very relaxing place to just be.

ME & CJ didn't catch any fish but a few others did so it was a successful field trip. However the highlight of my day was seeing this manatee swim right under us. I've lived here for over 20 years now and never have a I seen a manatee in the gulf up close like that. Sure I've seen them at Mote Marine and Sea World but having the privilege to see one of these gentle giants so close in its natural habitat was truly a blessing.
