Over the weekend Catch The Cuteness had a booth at the Telegraph Ave Holiday Street Fair in Berkeley, CA. I decided to set up a small table so kids could swing by and do some coloring. I tell ya, it was a blast to see these kids get into the sea creatures. Even if they called the Sea Turtle a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
This is What it's About!
This awesome kid pretty much summed up the afternoon. She LOVES the Manatee. She is probably the Manatee's number one fan, and I mean that whole heartedly.
As soon as her mother purchased the t-shirt, this cutie threw it on. Stoked to show it off. She was jumping up and down! And then she drew a picture of a manatee in the snowflake she's holding.
This is the stuff I love. And this is why I enjoy sharing my love of mother nature. I see happy faces a couple chuckles and most importantly a conversation.
Let's talk about the Manatee!
Right now the Florida Manatee is cozying up to warm freshwater springs to keep from freezing in the winter. They do a seasonal migration, beginning in November. Which is called Manatee Awareness Month! This means boaters have to keep a keen look out for these slow moving creatures and reduce speed so not to bump into them. They will be relaxing in these warm springs eating yummy greens until they return to the Ocean in the Spring.
Guess what the Florida State marine mammal is? Thats right, it's the MANATEE!!!
