Florida Keys 2010 travel blog

We parked in a crowded lot

A statue of a Manatee

Lots of people were viewing the Manatees

The nearby power plant creates the warm water

They were very still

Only coming up for air


There were over 100 in this location


On our way to Tampa to visit Tom's sister, we stopped at Manatee Park in Fort Myers. Last time we were here, the Manatees had already gone out into open water. Because of the cold snap, they were still here!

A Manatee is an aquatic mammal with a rounded tail flipper, living in shallow coastal waters and adjacent rivers of the tropical Atlantic.
