Dallas and his friend, Matt were here for the weekend and they came with us. They, of course, were to cool to just enjoy the experience and instead spent the day shouting things like, "The manatees are man-eaters! Do not put your hands in the water!" The other tourists looked on in horror at the two idiots who would say mean things about manatees at the preserve. We just tried to stay a good distance ahead of them so no one would know we were together.
We had such a nice day at Blue Spring and I can't wait to go back. Once spring comes and the manatees head back out into the river, people can swim there and go canoing and scuba diving. Count me in!
