Swimming with the Manatees
« on: February 14, 2013, 01:33:37 PM »
We are currently in Crystal River, FL. We just finished a 3 hour experience of a lifetime. Swimming with the manatees in a spring was awesome. They were close enough to touch. Really a neat way to spend Valentines Day with my sweetie of 35 years!

Great, Welcome to Crystal River. I live here.

  If one thinks that mermaids are cute, you should definitely see a Manatee. (Trichechus manatus)

Yesterday we saw the Mermaids at WeekiWachee (sp?). A totally different experience! 2 days...2 different mermaids. We were only going to stay for a week but decided to spend a few more days here. A trip to Homossassa(sp?) Park is planned.

Good stuff, dverstra. You are going to enjoy the Homossassa park. I suggest you take the boat trip to the animal area if you go into the parking lot of US19. Hope the rain stops soon.
  Stay a while we need your tourist dollars....   ;D

Better rain than snow!! I have to go back to Michigan in 10 days??
MaryAnne NEEDS to go to a Quilt Shop in Trenton and one in Dade City. I know it's not in Crystal River but I'm sure I'll leave some of those tourist dollars there.
