We got up early so we could see manatees. The park opens at 8am and fills up pretty quick even if schools don't send students for tours.
Something else, parking is not free anywhere in the Fort Myers area. Most parking lots charge $2 per hour or $5 per day.
There were lots of manatee in the canal. This is the output of the Fort Myers power plant. The water is always almost exactly the same temperature. Because of this, the manatee will come here when other waters are colder than they like.
Some of the manatee above were eating mangroves near the river.
There were at least 50. Some had their babies with them.
We somebody got breakfast.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
