We saw Snooty!

We drove The Wonder Falcon to the South Florida Museum & Aquarium to visit Jeff's old pal Snooty, the 65-year old manatee. The aquarium is in Bradenton, on the south side of the entrance to Tampa Bay. We found a parking space right in front of the museum.

Snooty is a celebrity.

They have a nice aquarium for him now.

On the way back, we stopped at the dirt-track speedway in Gibsonton. They have races every Saturday at 6:30 pm. I have been wanting to go for a long time and today had seemed like a perfect opportunity. Unfortunately, there had been some rain and the races were cancelled for this evening. Oh, well. Some other time.
