I hear you dude!
I live on the Gulf Coast in central Fla and we see them all of the time. I have had times when I was fishing on my kayak and they would just appear out of no where and check me out. I stuck my hand in the water and they would swim over and roll over for me to scratch their bellies. Sometimes I paddle away from them to continue fishing and they follow me. They are truly one of natures most wonderful creatures. There are places here in the winter where they bunch up in springs to stay warm and you can snorkle with them, it's the most amazing thing. I feel so lucky to have experienced these things
Can you take me there sometime?
