Missed the Manatees

I just found out 1o foot manatees were swimming 20 minutes from my home with a bunch of beach go’ers. I haven’t seen one in the canals or ocean since 2003. They used to come up to my back deck in Boca Raton and the neighbors and I would turn on the hose or sprinklers and they’d play and roll around with us for awhile. It was neat.  There is so much boat traffic now I never thought I’d see them again so close but that bit of news was nice to read! We used to throw them lettuce to eat, apparently it’s one of their favorites.
