I just love Middleburg, Virginia. It's so picturesque and historic. I always picture Civil War soldiers hiding behind these walls. After all, this was the territory of the Grey Ghost, the famed John Mosby, who was a thorn in the side of the Union Army.
As to my question about what a group of manatees is called, my Maven friend Marjean wrote to say that they are just called a group of manatees, basically. They are fairly solitary, so just gather in informal groups. That's Florida for you--everything is informal here. Now where are my flip flops...?
