On The Beach: Pass-A-Grille, Florida

A manatee swims right up to the concrete fishing pier at Pass-A-Grille, a charming beach town that juts into the aqua waters of the Gulf of Mexico. They can stay underwater for a long time before having to surface for air. Like a sea cow, the manatee is docile, peaceful and, unfortunately, endangered because of collisions with motorboats. Many manatees have scars on their bodies from such collisions.
