There were three maybe four manatees today straight out from the volley ball net. They stayed for about 40 minutes, and wove in out of the swimmer's. Then they would submerge, and reappear a little ways away. Next thing you know they would be swimming right under your feet again. Getting bumped in chest deep water by an animal as big as they are gets your attention real quick the first time. They had quite a crowd before they sailed on. Are they normaly off the Island this time of year?
