Manatee Park - with the cooler weather (sorry PA friends!) the manatees venture to any warm water they can find. Manatee Park is located close to a power plant which pushes out its warm waters into the park and the manatees just love it. My Aunt Edie & Uncle Randy took us here to see these wonderful water animals. I had only wished I could get in and swim with them!
We've been fortunate to hook up with the "Motley Crew" in our Punta Gorda Campground. They are a group of kayakers who generally go out weekly. It's a great way to meet people in the area as well as learn where the kayak hotspots are. Last week we paddled on Shell Creek (twice!). One alligator, one snake (YUCK!!! - Brenda, where were you when I needed you?!) and turtles galore.
Misc. FL sights...

|Deb's handiwork! I wish I would have taken a picture of "before and after"! Trust me - "before" was awful!|
Til next time...Happy Trails!
