Manatee the Sea Cow at St Pete Beach Florida

Last week I hopped on bus #7 to the Main post office in St Petersburg Florida, a block away from the Grand Central Bus Depot. After mailing a package,  returned to the bus depot for the Central AveGE DIGITAL CAMERAnue Trolley.

Stopped at Starbucks on 66th and Central for a small decaf on the way to the beach, then continued to Pass-A-Grille at the south end of St Pete Beach.

Walked along the shore to the fishing pier, where a manatee was roaming around. It’s a delight to see this chubby sea mammal swim around leisurely and poke it’s nose out now and then. Letting mother nature entertain you is a joy.

Met the Manatees at Pass-A-Grille in St Pete Beach Florida

A few days ago I took a stroll through Pass-A-Grille, the historic south end of St Pete Beach in Tampa Bay. At the southern tip there is a high rocky point where the fishermen gather, I don’t do any fishing myself but enjoy looking way out into the Gulf and north along the beach for several miles.

As I walked up to it I notice three manatees hanging around. When I stand there on the railing the three of them come up close and linger a while, rubbing each other’s noses. It was an awesome sight to see them up close, two adults and a cub. Sometimes mother nature delights you when you least expect it.
