Manatee Swim & Winter the Dolphin

With my latest trip down to Florida, Leah scheduled us for a swim with manatees tour. As an added bonus, Leah’s mom visited for the weekend and joined us for the adventure! ( p.s. Thanks for all the food!!) And what an adventure we had! Though we had to drive nearly 2 hours and the sun had yet to rise before we hit the water, it was a once in a lifetime experience that we all will never forget. Armed with our trusty underwater camera, we were able to get some awesome shots of a wild calf who played with us all day! We also took a trip over to Clearwater to visit Winter at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Winter, of course is the star of the movie Dolphin Tale, which depicts the true story of a dolphin who lost her tail from being caught in a crab trap. Not a dull moment all week! Thanks again to Leah for always¬†topping¬†my last trip!
