Florida quilt block with manatees We love manatees here in Florida!  These gentle giants nibble their way along the bottom and edges of our waterways, grazing on grasses and other green plants.  One of our favorite past times is simply watching the manatees float and glide through the water. 

Nearby Blue Springs State Park brings us very close to the big gray, "sea cows" along the St. John's River.  This park has made an amazing come back as a wildlife refuge through conservation and delicate care.  We donate all of the profits from our acrylic manatee templates to "Friends of Blue Springs", a volunteer group dedicated to supporting the park.
