Our sons and their girls were home for Easter weekend. I over-planned so we did not get to all of the activities, but we still had a great time. On Saturday morning, we loaded up the canoes and went to the Wakulla River.

I chose that river in  hopes of seeing manatees and we did see four in the few hours that we were  out.

These were  not the biggest manatees we have seen, but it is always a thrill to see them. The first ones we saw were a mother and young one.

Then we all saw another single one.  You will often hear them blowing before you see them.

We try to be careful to not be over them but sometimes the wind, current and their own movement makes this a little difficult.

B and I also spotted one on the river bottom.


We were amused by this little manatee-lookout on the front of this kayak. It had its own little PFD.
