We're back from vacation, we had a WONDERFUL time. Now I need to go catch up on my favorite blogs and get my blog list back up. I don't know how it disappeared. I'll be posting pics all week from our vacation. Today is dedicated to the Manatees.
The area where my Mom lives in winter is known as the nature coast and is well known for their Manatee population, both in the wild and in captivity (in kind of a hospital for manatees). Bill and I were going to swim with these gentle giants, but we simply ran out of time on vacation! Too much to do, so little time.
Here are some pics of manatees at the Homosassa State Wildlife Park just down the road from my Mom's. They are all females, some have young, and they all have been injured, mostly from boats. They eat romaine lettuce, lucky gals!
I would recommend Homosassa State Wildlife Park to anyone visiting Florida. It only cost Bill and I approx. $8 each to get in.
