Couple of Cuties / by Dave Hileman

We went to TECO Manatee Viewing Center, the power plant near Tampa where the warm water attracts lots of Manatee Watchers. Scores of them. There were also some Manatees, fewer I suspect than the Watchers but there were a lot. They just loll around in the 83 degree water and occasionally surface to snort at the Watchers gathered on the pier or the upper deck or the gift shop or the refreshment stand. Lots of Watchers.
