    Wink Manatees Homosassa Springs Park

    We went to Homasassa Springs Park to see Manatees.This is one of the places that help out sick or troubled Manatees.This past winter was really hard for these gentle giants.Me and my girl friend Penny really enjoyed seeing these animals.With all the bad news in the Gulf of Mexico right now, we needed some relief from seeing all of the oil covered animals. Take Care,Rich

    I haven't seen one yet. When I found out a friend has them come right up to their dock in the morning I got upset for her not calling and telling me to come over. Then she explained how early in the a.m. they showed up. lol Some day i'll see one. In the meantime; thanks for the awesome pics!!
