Luckily my friend's camera did not get waterlogged as mine did during our manatee swim. It was a VERY early ride out to Homosassa Springs, FL to swim with the manatees. We had to be at Captain Mike's at 5:30 am, which meant leaving our house at 4 am. As I am entering the water the sun is just starting to rise. The earlier you're out in the water and the colder it is, there is more of a chance to swim with multiple manatees. So we were not totally crazy for getting up early on this chilly morning.
If you're ever in the area, I highly recommend swimming with manatees. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget!
I hope to have have more photos to post later. The disposable camera is being developed as I type this. I was unable to look through the viewfinder when taking the photos, so hopefully some of them turned out okay.
