Off Topic Tuesday: Manatees!

Hello readers.  A quick little post today.  As I mentioned in my last post, I spent last week on the gulf coast of Florida.  You're probably getting sick of me mentioning it by now but I'm trying to hold on to the memories of warmth now that I'm surrounded by cold and snow.  Anyhow, while I was there I visited the Mote Marine Aquarium.  It's the only place I've ever seen manatees, gentle dopey giants.

There are two of them in residence there who were rescued but can't be returned to the wild.  One of them would squish his face into the glass wherever people were standing.  It was so funny and cute all at the same time.  So, without further ado... smoosh face manatee!




  1. Love this post! I love in Bradenton, Florida! I worked at Mote Marine Laboratory for 4 yrs. Love Hugh & Buffett!

    1. I'm so jealous! Working at an aquarium is my dream job. I'll just have to make do with my fish tanks at home for now. Those two manatees are adorable. I could have stood and watched them for hours had I not had other people with me, haha.

  2. His little face just squishes, ohh! This is so flipping cute!
