I love manatees. They are my favorite animal. And, because the waters are starting to warm back up, we are getting a lot of them in the Bay. In fact, Lochte, Phelps and I ran into some manatee the other night on our walk. Lochte was totally freaked out. It was hilarious. What a big baby we have.
I didn't have my camera then... but I have had several encounters with these gentle giants in which I did have my camera. Most of these pictures are from our honeymoon in Key West, where a mama and her calf lived right outside of our little villa.
