I hope I'm not boring you with more Florida Pictures..
I just have to share..
On my third day there.. we decided to go do something I had never seen before...
Watch the Manatee!
We went to Blue Springs National Park ( I believe that's the name)..We had to get up really early as all the Manatee come into the spring where it's a constant 72 degrees before the Ocean Waters warm up for the day.. This day there were 201 in sight!

This is Britt again.. as you can tell.. she's an actress.. she was standing in front of some informative board.. I never did get to read it... LOL LOL

Crazy me.. I had to take more pictures of the landscape.. I mean seriously we just don't have this stuff in NH.. and everything was pretty GREEN vs the WHITE and BROWN you see here.. Apparently the springs water was extremely low as it's suppose to go up to the roots of some of these trees that you see.

More Green AND Spanish Moss.. I love that stuff!!

Those two birds sat there the WHOLE time we were there.. there was so many people.. but it didn't seem to bother them one bit.. I have no idea what kind of bird they are.. but they were kind of funny to watch..

Ok.. one more Spanish Moss.. this tree was AMAZINGLY HUGE!!

Here is a Manatee.. this is probably one of the best pictures I got.. this one swam really close to where we were standing.. Sadly I didn't see ONE really come up out of the water like I had hoped for....

For the most part though they stayed in packs and every now and again you would see their little fins come up out of the water... or the tip of their nose for air...

More... there are actually babies in this one... ahhhhh...

My friends beautiful daughters...

And again.. neither one of them are camera shy.. AT.ALL!

So we sat in this big hollowed out tree trunk.. and we were taking pictures...doing goofy faces and what not... and on this shot... someone ( girl in the pink) came up behind the tree and "I seeeeeeeeee youuuuuuuuuuu".. we just laughed.. but I was kind of like.. "huh"??? Then she booked it.. we had to laugh cause it was probably something we would have done!!! ha ha!!
