We made it to Bethune Cove where the manatees were nowhere to be found. Wifey was very dissapointed. At 12:45 we started our paddle back with the wind against and choppy waters. On top of that the several motor boats in the lagoon rocked us real good everytime they went by us. It was no fun at all. Twice in our way back we saw dolphins, one of them just in front of Turtle Mound which is a high mound that rises a soaring 50ft(ok...I know...bad joke) over the sea level.
The low tide prevented us from exploring other areas. That and the wind, but the dolphins did worth the price of the ticket. It is the first time we see so many dolphins in the same trip. There were not too many wading birds to shoot pics at. Lots of gulls, pelicans and ospreys. Here are some pics of what we saw today.
