Manatee Lagoon

[  2.13.16  |  WEST PALM BEACH, FL  ]
It doesn’t get cold in Florida often, but when it does herds of manatees head to the FPL warm-water outflows to keep warm. It is in this same location that they’ve recently opened the new Manatee Lagoon – a very nice learning facility with optimal manatee viewing decks. When I visited it seemed like hundreds of them were huddled up and some were clearly basking in the sun. It was quite spectacular to see these gentle giants up close. (P.S. Manatee bellies just make me smile)
