|A wonderful ride on the trails!|
Last Tuesday, we went to Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River to go kayaking with the manatees. It was another beautiful day and were happy to have two nice back-to-back days weather-wise!! We loaded up the gear in the vehicles and nine of us were on our way.
|Sure hope this isn't the only manatee that we see!|
|Putting in the yaks!|
|It was a beautiful day to be on the water|
|We had to paddle in a tunnel!!|
|This big manatee floated by right in front of us.|
The springs were actually open for paddlers and some of our group ventured in to do this. Dan, Gin, Syl, and I couldn't fit our kayaks between the posts (used to close off the springs) so we hung back. Gin and Syl sought shade while Dan and I motored about.....
|Should we trade in the kayak for this lovely boat? :-)|
|Pete's Pier in Crystal River|
|Pelicans were everywhere!|
We saw several manatees floating by but it was a bit hard to capture them in a picture as the water was quite dark. We paddled a bit more and the weather started looking like it could get cranky so we headed back to our put-in point.

Life is good!
