Crystal River Myth


Today's My World Tuesday is from Crystal River, Florida. Let me be honest with you and dispel a myth... the river is not crystal clear at all. In-fact, it is so murky that you can't see your hand in-front of your face. Crystal river is one of the few places that you can actually touch manatees. In all other places in the United States it is against the law to touch or approach a manatee. I guess that someone decided they would make $$ if they changed the rules in this town. We got up really early and drove to the dock, paid our money and boarded a boat. The captain saw a manatee.... so he said and we stopped the boat in the middle of nowhere and looked for manatees. No one saw one. We all told the captain that we needed to look in another spot, so he took us to a location with about 12 other boats. I guess that there were manatees right there, but as I said before the water was so murky that it is impossible to tell. I usually can see the bright side of things, but on this day I was disappointed and felt like we wasted our time. Here are pics of the day.

A crazy picture from our Halloween Party.  Can you believe that Halloween was almost a month ago?  It feels as though this month is flying by!!  If you are wondering, she is the Syd's sister's doll from the movie toy story.
