Today was a very special day! Roxanne and Beth with their families from Washington State met mama and papa at Homosassa, FL to swim with the Manatee's! Some of our party actually touched Manatee's. Papa had a baby manatee swim right underneath him! We all wore wet suits and used masks & snorkels to swim with Manatee's. The water is spring fed and flows to the gulf. The Manatee's come to the spring area from the gulf in the winter to be in the warmer water.
After our encounter with the Manatee's we went to our place for a burger cookout. We had a great time - only heard one terrifying scream - precious Charlotte was holding a small lizard at papa's house when it jumped on a bare spot just below her neck. heh heh! Would have made a great GEICO commercial!
Papa and others wept as papa prayed and blessed the food as we stood and held hands. Roxanne also prayed and thanked GOD for our many blessings. Mama and papa love our blogging family.
