Searching for Manatees in Crystal River Fl

Before we left for Asia we only had a few Saturdays to make the most of. So the Saturday before finals week (not the most responsible thing to do) we spent on the water searching for manatees. The weather had been quit warm in Florida for December which was nice, yet not optimal for spotting manatees. We had seen them before in the canal behind our Miami apt. but that was nothing like the clear blue water in crystal river. Even with the weather against us we still spotted and swam with a few manatees. We even got an extra dolphin surprise on our way back to the boat dock. 

It was a wonderful day enjoying nature, and since I had already chose to postpone the much needed studying I stayed even latter to watch Les Mis with Jari that night. I sure stress myself out for the sake of fun but looking back I don't regret it at all. A fun Saturday sure beats staying home and studying for finals.
Can you tell we were a little excited?
