My trip to Manatee Springs last week to look for manatees was fruitless.
My school librarian who has recently become a kayaker, told me she was surrounded by them earlier in the week as she drifted in her kayak.
The springs are only a few minutes away, so I decided to drop in on the way to the grocery store.
Even though I was there early in the morning, they had moved out into the Suwannee to graze. The day was not cold enough to keep them huddled in the warm, 72 degree Fahrenheit spring flow.
There was this little grebe though, even if the manatees were elsewhere.
