Minimize by Manateeing…

For the past few months, I’ve been trying to lose weight.  Recently, I decided I will stop dieting and instead take a trip down to Crystal Springs to frolick with the manatees.  Swimming next to a thirteen hundred pound sea cow has to make a girl feel small, right?!?


In all seriousness, I once had the opportunity to swim, in the middle of the ocean, with about one hundred dolphins (a few pods of spinners mixed with a pod of spotteds, right in the middle of hammer head breeding grounds…Big Island of Hawaii.  Tour guide said it was a very unusual mixture of events).  It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had.  I’ll never forget looking eye to eye with a dolphin about 6 inches from my face, with dolphins beside me and below me and a 360 surround sound of dolphin chirping filling my ears.  It gives me chills.  I feel like minimizing by manateeing, while not as wild, would be a similarly fantastic way to connect, even if just for a moment, to the Avatar life force.  Anybody been?
