Living the RV Dream: Hundreds of Manatees

From the podcasters at Living the RV Dream:

We viewed hundreds of Manatees when we visited the Tampa Electric Company (TECO) Big Bend power station this week. They were in the warm water of the facility’s discharge canal.

When the Gulf of Mexico’s water temperature dips below 68 F, the warm blooded manatees need to find warmer water. TECO has constructed a wonderful manatee viewing area where we took all these pictures.

We also visited the Hillsborough River State Park which is quite close to our current location in Zephyrhills, Fla. This is an old park with many improvements done by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s. There is lots of history there as well. The old forts were used by the army during the Indian wars against the Seminole tribes. One has been restored and is open for tours several days a week.

On the way, we were able to meet Kimberly Travaglino, founder of Fulltime Families, an awesome support group for folks full-timing with kids and homeschooling them on the road.
