West Indian Manatees: Crystal River, Florida

This young lady was only 9 years old at the time this photo was taken. Along with her father, she spent nearly two hours observing the manatees in this beautiful, fresh water spring. Not bad for someone who was just learning to snorkel. I don't know who had more fun -- her or the manatees!
