Manatee State Park

  I had such an awesome time on my journey through Florida. like i said earlier.. im starting some where in the middle of my trip. somewhere in this link is a web cam and any one can see how many Manatees come to this location  each day. the day we went there were over 200. and im told that was a low number.  but for me it was over whelming, in all my years of going to Fl. ive never been able to see these creatures..EVER!

at first i thought it was a joke, and this was all i was going to see…..
Swimmers in the spring.
we weren’t fortunate enough to be able to swim with them .
the water is so crystal clear, and with the reflection from the was hard to get decent photos… but heres a young one coming up for air.
all those shadows…..yep the mother load of Manatees
there were some workers trying to get them to swim more so we could see them better, and they take very good care of these obsolete creatures.



its such a beautiful park, so well maintained, and it only costs $3.00 a car to get in.
it was here LittleOh lost some body parts and her camera. she thought this was a Gecko’ trying to get her.
plenty of places to sit , wash your feet.. if you need to 🙂  but you know i love my benches:)
gift shops and cafeterias along with  vending machines
rest rooms were impeccably clean
the whole area was just breathtaking
plenty to look at here.. but take a closer look.. theres’ mamma manatee and her baby. i was so thrilled. only wish i could have gotten a better shot of them. the sun was so bright.

so it ws tiem to g=o visit my friends’ Daughter and G’kids.  and after  that..

what else….. food and drink.. when Im in Fl. i like to eat as much fish as i can. so i had grouper fingers. and… fish dip.     my friend doesn’t  like seafood at all, she had …a pork chop.
so yeah we drank and ate some where in Lake Mary. at a place called Duffy’s
all i can say is.. watered down  vodka!!!

so we moved on the the next bar, after all we didnt have to drive our hotel was just a few feet from this concourse

another Irish bar, and this was when i knew i had been drinking watered down vodka…at the other place.   but any way, this was the outfit the females wore. they were cute.. 


heres litttleOh all put back together again. ,

well that will do it for today, if you stopped.. and i hope you did:)  i hope you liked what you saw.. and please have a great rest of the week…oh yeah and week end..since today is Thursday:)
