I went to a small local park, that has lots of trees, so that I could walk in the shade. The Florida temperature has been around 94 degrees, with a heat index of 105.
I walked down to the river, where you can tie up canoes, and saw a manatee in the water almost close enough to touch.
By the time I grabbed my phone from my fanny pack, and went to camera it had gone under, but you can make out the shape of it.
Manatees can stay under water for a long time, so unfortunately I didn’t see it come up again.
I am so lucky to see these gentle giants at our local parks, and along the river walk.
Unfortunately the photos don’t really show it, because they are from a phone, and it had submerged. I was really hoping I could share great pics with you all. Therefore I added a publicdomainimage from Pixabay.
