Mark: When we were in Florida we were in a marina where we put the boat in the water. We were washing the boat off before taking the camper away, and this manatee came over. We dropped the hose over to the water on a slow trickle. The manatee tried to drink from the hose. My kids were shaking his flippers and rubbing his belly.

Mark: Our intention is to camp and sail all four corners of the United States and check out our bucket list of America’s largest lakes. We haven’t decided which corner we’ll visit next.
