Our Day

Today we went to Manatee Park. Or at least that's what we call it. It's a little offshoot of a river that stays fairly toasty due to power plant run-off, and so in the winter the Manatees come inland to hang out and warm up. There is now a park built around this fact with viewing areas and tour guides and what not.

So even though it's not exactly winter, our friends are visiting, so we thought we'd give it a shot and see if anybody was lurking in the water.

We were hoping to, you know, maybe see a manatee. See?

Well, ok, Lilli couldn't have cared less, but Elizabeth looks intrigued by the idea:

Instead of manatees, we saw this:

If you were a manatee, would you have gone anywhere near the area? I wouldn't.

You can tell that Lilli wouldn't either:

It was still a lovely day though, and we did see other things.

Like Spanish Moss, which never fails to make me feel like I should be wearing a hoop skirt and sitting on a porch with a lemonade and Rhett Butler:

And a lovely view. Did I mention it was a nice day?

And of course some of the members of the group were exceptionally easy to please.

So what's not to like about today? I hope your Friday was half as good!
