Sea cow surprise
Sanibel resident Kathie Galluzzo was paddleboarding with her husband, Joe, and friend, Pattee Cook Frank, along with Frank’s daughter, Tracee, on May 6 near Castaways Cottages when the group spotted a manatee. She said it came right over to them to play, making sure it said hello to all who were there, one by one. The manatee even nudged away the board Frank, owner of Tips & Toez Nail Salon, was on with its nose. Galluzzo called the experience incredible.
