On Tuesday we went out in the afternoon hoping to find the manatees - we did not. However, while in Three Sisters Springs I spotted this root system and some fain sunbeams, It was so beautiful.

Yesterday I got this shot of a manatee - little did I know that this would be the only day that we would find any in the springs. Today we found one outside the springs, but in very murky water
