Natural Florida… Manatee at Blue Spring State Park
When the air and water temperature drops manatee seek warmer waters. On the morning we visited Blue Spring State Park the count was 403 manatees in the lagoon according to information at the park entrance.At the spot where 104 million gallons of water enters the lagoon daily visitors were treated to the cavorting of a small group of manatees in the 72 degree water. They played follow the leader, rolled around and hugged one another.… there were nose kisses… and splashing of tails
It was well worth getting up early for the 2 hour trip to the park and standing outdoors in the cool morning air to see it all happen.
