At Burnt Store Marina/Charlotte Harbor, FL I loved the abundant manatees and dolphins playing by the boat.
So I was ecstatic to see our first Key West manatee today in the marina!
Back at Burnt Store, every morning, we’d have dolphins fishing by the stern of the boat and every morning and sunset, we had a parade of manatees – maybe a dozen? – swimming by on their way to sun themselves in the warm shallow marina waters.
Since we’ve been in Key West, the wildlife has been minimal, much to my dismay. I keep hoping to hear the dolphins playing or manatees parading. But alas, some things are not the same.
On the other hand, it’s much warmer here — like 55 at Burnt Store and 70+ here. Maybe the manatees will follow us all the way from Burnt Store Marina???? Keeping my fingers crossed.
