Jetty Park at Port Canaveral, FL

A Manatee and a Sea turtle, captured in Jetty-Park, Cape Canaveral


Hi my friends,

Yesterday I have seen for the first time in my life for real a Manatee swimming in open waters. It was very impressive to see this protected animal of the sea in its natural habitat. Later on I've spotted a sea turtle peeping out from the water.

***

is one of the most popular recreation spots in Brevard County. Besides the 4.5 acre family beach with its designated areas for swimming and surfing (lifeguards on duty year round), one of this park's best-loved features is the 1,200 foot Malcolm E. McLouth Fishing Pier - open 24 hours, paved, lighted, equipped with fish-cleaning tables with running water and fully accessible to the physically challenged. Specially designed beach wheelchairs give access both to the beach and pier. A recently renovated and expanded building on the boardwalk houses an air-conditioned refreshment center and a bait and tackle shop.

I wish you an interesting and fun day too!
Susanne

The water looks so cool and refreshing. I feel like diving in and playing with my water friends.

The turtle and manatee would be wanting to catch a glimpse of Susanne,in the hope that their photo would on the internet for all the world to see, thanks to Sue's skill in capturing, and recording such events, with appropriate words to accompany them.

Thank you, thank you, dear Donald for all these wonderful words. It sounds like a review in a world wide known magazine - and the blog is kind of that magazine, right?

Thanks for stopping by, Donald :)

You make me always smile, Donald - thank you for that! :)

Yes it was a wonderful experience for me to see a Manatee in its real habitat, Louis. :)

Thanks for your kind comment.

Our summer has been so hectic, that I am wayyyy behind in reading blogs and sporadic too...but today I am doing some "back reading" of older posts..loved this one. I was thrilled to see a manatee the last time we were in Florida too.

Susanne49 said...

Thank you sooooo much, Joan.

You are not behind at all, you're the one of my most loyal friends here and on FB too. I appreciate all your comments, my dear and very busy women:))

Anna said...

Congrats Susanne. Nice to add something new to your collection. Must have been stunning view. Anna :)

Susanne49 said...

It was not that easy to capture them either, dear Anna....Hubby saw them first and tried to spot it to me and I had to wait until they stick the nose out from the water again.... hooo...it's a hard job to be a wildlife photographer and to chase moving objects....LOL...

Thanks for commenting, Anna! ;)

Hi Susanne, I have not been around for a while and I have enjoyed browsing though your site. Must have been awesome seeing a manatee - I would love to see one. Great photography as usual.

Susanne49 said...

Hi Max-e, very nice to see you again on my blog!

I have not been on yours either since long time, sorry for that! I just have no more the time to visit all my 380 followers, every day! I hope you understand :))

Thanks for your kind comment. Yes, it's overwhelming to see a manatee. I think the same great feelings as to see a whale in your waters, down there at the Cape in SA.

I wish I could see one!

Love the sea turtle? It makes me think of Crush from Finding Nemo. Riding the EAC (East Australian Current) I have yet to see a manatee in its natural habitat since I moved to Florida
