About a mile out to sea, where the surf is breaking, is a long reef . It protects the beach side, creating ideal conditions for water play activities. On the beach side the water ranged from knee to chest deep, with lots of sandy bottom, coral, rocks, and sea life. On the ocean side, the water depth was approximately 70 feet. Every day we saw people fishing from the shore with long fishing rods anchored in the beach with a bell attached to announce when a fish strikes. As well as folks using snorkel gear with spears for octopus and fish.
It was the first time I ever went snorkeling. Swimming in the moving water, breathing with a snorkel, while trying to take pictures, is not an easy feat. Talk about multi-tasking sheesh!
The vibrant colours and textures were amazing.
This is my favourite photo of all the ones I took under the sea.
These fish kept swimming away, they refused co-operate.
Coral is very sharp, I was careful not to touch it or step on it.
I think her photos are amazing.
