Travel Fantasy: Manatee Watching

If you are in Florida, by any chance between now and the end of next March you can experience something totally out of this world - manatee-watching. About 70 miles north of Tampa on the Crystal River is where the magic happens. As manatees can't survive in water below 60 degrees, every year during winter they migrate to Kings Bay where people can see them up close and if you are brave enough, you can even go for a swim with those gentle giants. I also read that despite their size they are incredibly trusting and the only thing they want is affection. Isn’t that sweet? Would you fancy a dip with one of them? xo

P.S: Here is Louise’s experience.
P.P.S: Do you remember the man and this elephant best pal? Love!
