Swimming with Manatees! FUN!!

Good Sunday Morning Everyone,

Wow, I haven't posted in over a week, but, I knew I had to take the time to finally share with everyone how awesome it was to go swimming with the manatees with my sisters and my Mom! I can't express to you how special it was to have my precious Mom with us during this journey. As I had mentioned before, my Mom had spent the last 7 years being the main caregiver for my Daddy while he battled Pic's Disease, a rare form of brain disease. After, Daddy's death in December, we knew we needed to get Mom back out there and let her know, "that Daddy would want her to continue living"....and so we planned this awesome trip to Crystal River, Florida to swim with the manatees.

I can't count the laughs....the smiles.....and yes, a few tears.....I will never forget this time with her and my sisters.....so, here we go....

 So, if you find yourself in Crystal River Florida and want to swim with the manatees, contact River Ventures and schedule your trip with Captain Mike....he is the best! It was so much fun and a trip I will never forget!




  1. Oh Wow! How much fun that would be. And to share it with mom. Blessings my dear.

  2. Great pictures of Manatees. I love to watch those big, gentle animals. I'd love to go swimming with them some day. Thank you for sharing with the Clever Chicks Blog Hop! I hope you’ll join us again next week!

  3. oh my gosh, this is amazing, and hurt-my-heart cute. i swam with manatees many years ago, and it was not crystal springs, it was murky water, and it was pre good cameras that went under water...but, the memories are there. you are making me feel like i should go again. so glad you all experienced this together.
