Last weekend we visited my parents in Florida. According to my mom, we visited the real Florida. We didn't go to Disney World or spend days on the beach. We traveled the back roads and played bingo at the retirement clubhouse.
One day we took a day trip to Blue Spring State Park. Manatees come into the river there because it is warmer for them. We were lucky enough to see a manatee and a gator and some turtles.
My dad is a big fan of manatees.
