Paddling the clear springs of Central Florida just rocks!






Every once in a while a female Manatee will stay in the spring run for the entire year and use the sanctuary as a safe haven. This is one of those years. Today we got to see a baby Manatee that was less than 24 hours old. While his Momma is 13 ft long or so he was only about 2.5 feet long and cute as a bug's ear. The Ospreys, Red-shouldered Hawks and American Coots were out and about today and back in the swamps we saw some Wild Turkeys walking on the newly dried up floor of the island. The big Gator was sitting under the Oak Tree while back in the creek we saw a few smaller ones and several Turtles out sunning. It was a beautiful day to be on the river and once again she blessed us with the jewels of nature!
