    Aren't They Adorable?

    I think manatees are the cutest creatures in the world. I was really upset when I went to Disney World one year to find that at the time, the manatees had been taken out of there tank for some unexplained reason. I really wanted to see them. I want to swim with them ...

    Beautiful Creatures

    Ok so most would say they aren't the cutest things, but I have seen way uglier creatures!

    They are just the cutest,

    sweetest lil water nuggets. One of my dreams is to see one in person and hopefully touch it. It's sad that they get run over and stuff...poor babies. I also hate that manatee necklaces are harder to find than dolphin ones AND more expensive. Like c'mon now.

    I Swam With Manatees (shhh!)

    Since I didn't know you weren't supposed to at the time, no harm no foul. But yes, I did, we were staying in New Smyrna for the weekend, and we saw them in the water that day so that afternoon I said I'm going to get in and see if they will come to me. I used to pat the water...

    Thanx For Bringing That Up
