We awoke to a nice warm cockpit. It hadnt gotten as cold as we expected and the heater was a big help.
Decided to take the dingy and run up to Blue Springs to see the Manatees…and maybe spot a few gators on the way. I am always surprised to see turtles sunning near them. You can see the look of pure joy on this turtles face. We saw a couple of large gators. they didnt look too friendy so we didnt try for closer pictures…we are in an inflatable…one good bite and we’d be swimming with them.
