Our vacation adventures continued yesterday and the boys moved on from dolphins, to tarpon feeding, to some quality time with a couple of super affectionate manatees while fishing.
Two different manatees in two different locations stayed super close to the boat and pier we were on and sought out the boys’ attention. One was busy drinking from the boat and watching the their every move….the second was actually “asking” for belly rubs, sucking on Thatcher and Finn’s fingers, and shaking hands. While obviously free to leave at any moment, both manatees stayed and played with the us for a long time. If it weren’t for the giant tarpon and two sharks we saw, you can bet the boys would have jumped in the water with both!
