This Was One of the Most Mesmerizing Experiences I Have Ever Had

Yesterday, my family and I drove up to Cape Canaveral Florida to visit a client that I had helped in purchasing a beautiful riverfront condo a month before.  We went straight down to the boat docks by the gazebo hoping to get a glimpse of the manatees playing.  We saw at least 6 of them.  These sea cows, known as gentle giants live in shallow waters in our lagoons. 

We we absolutely mezmerized at what we saw.

In the 35 years I have lived in Brevard County I have never seen anything like this before.

All of these pictures were taken in the backyard of my client’s new riverfront condo here in Brevard County Florida.

These guys were drinking fresh water from a hose. They couldn’t get enough of it.

They were circling and snorting and doing somersaults right in front of us. 

They were so close we could reach out and touch them.

They just loved laying on their backs and taking in the fresh water.

My friend, Tony, indicated that the manatees are very active early in the morning.  They love playing and and having fun in the water. Later in the day they usually are resting.

He has indicated that he can stand on his balcony and watch the porpoises jump, also.

Now this is what I call heaven. 

Such an incredible sight to see. 

My teenage daughters absolutely loved watching these playful, fun loving creatures.

My client, who has become a great friend of mine, has told us that anytime we want to visit, we are more than welcome to come to watch the manatees.

He absolutely loves his new home, as he says that everyday he feels like he’s on vacation.
