Kayaking with Manatees

I'm not sure how it happened, but I overlooked blogging about an awesome adventure we had last fall shortly after moving back. Shame on me! 
We were lucky enough to go kayaking in Weeki Wachee Springs State Park with our friends, the Paul Family. The water was so clear and blue, and there were manatees just swimming along, including some babies! I apologize for the quality of the pictures but water activites=iPhone in waterproof case. Even with just an iPhone camera, you can see what a beautiful area it is. We can't wait to get back out on the water again.
Let's go kayaking!

Kayaking selfie. That's right.

Look at that water! 

Living the Florida life.

Stacy on her stand-up paddle board, and me in the kayak. Good times!

Time-out can happen anywhere. Even a log. 

I'm trying out the SUP. Everyone else is waiting for me to fall in.
I didn't. Because I rock.

Danny is about to jump off that tree. He's crazy.

James gets up close with a manatee. One swam under his hand and he was
able to gently touch its back. It was very cool. He loved it!

Swim along, little manatee.
