John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: Friday's Fotos - Sunset Week Continues with Something Swimming in the Lagoon

Friday's Fotos - Sunset Week Continues with Something Swimming in the Lagoon

Sunset Week on my blog continues with something swimming in the Banana River Lagoon, Cape Canaveral. I was too busy taking this photo to notice but it's probably a manatee. Gators are rarely, if ever seen here although mating season sometimes drives them to wander from their natural fresh water habitat. One was actually spotted on Cocoa Beach many years ago. Shark meets Gator? ;-)

What a beautiful photo of the sunset!  :)  I could do without the gator however!

Hi Debbie - I'm pretty sure that was a manatee enjoying the sunset but you never know ;-)

As always...  Agrewat picture.  Can I just sit on the beach and watch it instead of having to live through the pics?

I can only imagine how wonderful it would be to swim around with a manatee in the water, under the sky like that one.  I have swam with dolphins which actually allowed me to ride on their backs.  But never the gentle giants, the manatees of Florida!

I should also mention, I'd be willing to swim with most anything in those waters. . .Probably the most dangerous would be a shark.  But I've shuffled around this planet long enough to know there are far more sharks on land than ever dwelled in the sea:-)

No problem Chris - Grab a lawn chair and watch away!

Hey, john!  I love the way you have the sun reflected on the water!

John  Lovely photo as usual - it seems there were no swimmers investigating

I think I see it, but I’m so focused on the beautiful sun and its reflection in the clouds and the water!

John, I agree with the other commenters. I especially like getting sunrise and setting sun photos. Those are the aspects that make the Coast Scene a little different on a daily basis. I think it is very nice of God to grant us these special times and special shots.

Hey Myrl - That would be cool swimming with dolphins but I don't know about manatees, It be would like playing with a log in the water. I've seen enough sharks (and cougars) too! ;-)

Thanks Patricia - Isn't nature grand?

Hi Karen - This spot is known more for fishing than swimming. They go to a sandy island beach for that.

Hi Jim - I never noticed it until I processed the photo.

Suzi - I hold the camera and nature does the work. Sounds good to me! ;-)
