Giant Female won’t leave Allan Alone

Yes, it’s true, Allan found himself involved with a strange female. It started out innocently enough. He was standing in Crystal River next to his kayak, telling our tour guide about Soles4Souls, the shoe charity we work with. Suddenly a huge manatee swam by Allan. Allan put on his mask and snorkel and slowly moved closer to the manatee. He gently touched her “furry” body. I guess that clinched the relationship. The manatee rolled over so Allan could rub her stomach. He obliged, then moved away. The manatee followed. He rubbed her again, then moved away. She followed. Do you see a pattern here? We all laughed as the manatee stayed close to Allan. He finally had to let her know he was married by getting back into the kayak, away from his adoring fan. I’ve heard of chick-magnets, but who knew there was such a thing as a manatee-magnet?
