11/14 to 11/16 Tarpon Springs to St. Petersburg Dolphins and Manatees
As we cruised along dolphins swam around us. Some pods played in our wake. I got some on video but need to crop the video first. It was very cool. This area has many mangroves protecting the islands and coast. Mangroves provide habitat for fish and crab.
We arrived in St. Petersburg for a few days of rest. We are staying at Loggerhead Marina.
Today, I got up close with manatees in a basin in the marina. It was such fun to watch these gentle giants. How much fun is that?
Tomorrow, head to Anna Maria Sound. It is about 50 miles from here and takes us through some of Tampa Bay.
