Last month, we spent an amazing Sunday afternoon at a local state park called Wakulla Springs.
Every winter the Manatees come up the local rivers and hang out in the warmer water.
They are such cool animals! Penelope is in love with all types of water animals; dolphins, whales, mermaids, fish, and now manatees.
She got such a kick out watching them swim by. We even got to see a Mama and Baby nursing, she has several books about baby animals nursing, so that was exciting.
Wakulla Springs has some swiming/diving docks and you can just walk up and see the manatee’s.
I about had a heart attack when we were up on the diving platform. I kept asking Peter if he had a good hold on her. Makes me nervous!
You can also go on a boat tour. I highly recommend the boat tour. So much fun.
There is a ridiculous amount of wildlife to see on the boat tour. It really made me feel blessed to live in North Florida.
We love to hike and be outdoors, so we try to do something outdoors on the weekend, a couple of times a month.
Where is your favorite local, outdoorsy place to visit?
