I took a short weekend trip to Florida to see my family at my grandparents’ house in Tampa. I was at Walter Foods in Brooklyn having dinner when I noticed an old photo of a man holding up a fishing line with a….manatee on the end. WHO HUNTS MANATEES!?!? They are just nice gentle herbivores who are generally very trusting. They are also endangered. So I was all like, lets go swim with the manatees in the wild before it’s too late!!!
So we did. But first you have to find the manatees in the fairly murky water they live in. Not an easy task my friend. It’s actually kind I tiresome. You ride around in a boat at fairly slow speeds and look for them.
But when you do find them it’s pretty cool.
