Did you hear about the recent sighting of the manaphin off from Clearwater Beach!?! The marine experts in the world had long thought this unique creature was extinct.

It is a mammal and thought to be part manatee and part dolphin.

And oddly enough, the same week of the manaphin sighting, a "banana-phin" showed up on my kitchen counter!
You never ever leave food out on the counter at our house!

The banana actually came from Chris' sister. She wanted us to try the banana as it is about half the size of a regular banana and she says it tastes better than the larger fruit.

As Chris studied the banana, he began to see "shapes" and with the help of his trusty pen, he'd created a banana-phin!

Of course, I had to put it in my sketchbook.

My husband's food art is legendary.

We used to have waiters that would get excited when they saw us come in the door because they couldn't wait to see what Chris would create for them to find after we'd finished our meal.

All that time his mother just thought he was playing with his food…

Anyway, if you'd like to know more about the really cool manaphin, please visit here. You can see photos and hear what it sounds like underwater.
