Swimming with the Manatees
I think this is the coolest thing I did on vacation. Swimming in the river and having these huge, shy mammals gliding up to you to get a scratch. They are so graceful in the water despite their size. There were many of them in the river and spring that day. The ropes in the sketch are the anchor ropes for the boat...one manatee kept going over there and playing with them.
I'm also calling this a self portrait for Everyday Matters challenge. I'll do another though...cause it's kind of a cheater...having that mask covering most of my face!
