VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – A resident of the Shadowlawn neighborhood in Virginia Beach spotted a manatee Friday – and again Sunday.

Julie Harvey Nameth snapped a picture of the unexpected sighting and shared it with WAVY.

We reached out to the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, which confirmed several manatees in Rudee Inlet in recent days. Matthew Klepeisz with the Aquarium said manatee sightings are actually pretty common in this area in the summer.
