Thanksgiving Manatees (Crystal River, Fl)

LFF0120 Price-Contact Artist

Hope everyone enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving holiday!  This Thanksgiving, I had the opportunity to go to Crystal River, Florida.  What a great place!  With temperatures between 40 and 55 degrees, it felt like Thanksgiving.  And we got to see manatees in their natural habitat.  Of course, to see them head-on, you need to swim with them but if you are patient enough, you can see one or two bobbing out of the water to get a breath.  Very cool creatures who are gentle giants.
