What an awesome day in the Marina. We woke just before day break to see a family of dolphins (maybe more correctly porpoise) playing near the boat. Just after coffee and before repositioning the boat to a different slip we were visited by a large manatee. Just after tying up at a new slip we had another manatee just hanging out at the back of the boat sipping hose water. Ended the day with a fine meal at Dixie Crossroads (you gotta try the rock shrimp).

Love the video…
Sorry we missed you two last night. We sure enjoy following your adventures. Stay safe
Yes , they are really a lot of fun. We had a prive dock at our home on Longboat Key and had manatee there all the time. They simply LOVE fresh water baths and hose downs, We also would have 2 or more births every year which was extremely interesting to watch all the momma to baby happenings. Baby would firmly attach to momma for more than a week to be fed by momma continually. Jerry Mathis
