|No boat trailer for us! A custom "Dangineered" boat carrier and launcher|
Dan has made a few modifications to the boat including a contraption that he uses to stand and steer.
We've been out on the water a few times with Gin and Syl.
We enjoy exploring the waters and just chilling. We've been some beautiful sights.....
and have seen quite a bit of wildlife including this playful dolphin.
Gin and Syl spotted this guy....he was throwing either a fish or a crab in the air, catching it and tossing it back up in the air over and over again. It was so neat to watch.
Despite a little bit of wind, we went out in the Gulf one day with new friends Jack and Star.
Yep - we love our little boat!
Dan's brother Tim and SIL Ann visited us for 5 days. We had a great time catching up and showing them around the area. Tim had been here before in the Spring but it was Ann's first visit to Cedar Key. The weather was a bit cranky for Florida but we bundled up and made the best of it.
We went to Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park one day. There are advantages to going when it is cool. The crowds are minimal, the animals are active, and the manatee are in the Springs!

|Ann and I goofing off!|
And the birds are also nice to watch....
|Beautiful wood duck|
|What a face!|
|Hmmm...is that food I see?|
|That's one big hippo! 6000 lbs!|
We also took Tim and Ann to Manatee Springs State Park.....we have been here several times and it is always a treat. It was another cool day but we bundled up again.

|No manatee in the spring - but we did see them at the mouth of the river.|
We enjoyed our time with Tim and Ann and am glad they came for a visit. Thanks guys!
