We said our goodbyes to Sas and headed south to Manatee Springs State Park. The warm natural springs attract manatees during the winter months. We came upon the spring and were excited to see the water churning and flashes if big fins below the surface. Sadly it was just a group of scuba divers.

Our time on the boardwalk was still full of other encounters like the largest congregation of buzzards ever assembled.

The water was especially clear and teaming with turtles (below the log).
