While snorkeling yesterday it dawned on me why I might be drawn to this paradise. I think it's because even though we come back to the same island, and many times stay in the same place, it's always a different flavor. The flavor of the week this week is turtles.
I have been swimming with turtles like I've never done before. They seem to come out of nowhere, and there we are, almost cheek to cheek. Yesterday the conditions were pristine. The sun was shining brightly, the turtles were thick as thieves. We probably saw 18-20 of them. I wanted to take photos so bad I could taste it.
While visiting a dive shop, they mentioned that they rented underwater cameras. It took me as long as it takes to whip out a credit card and sign on the dotted line for me to march that camera home. Today wasn't as bright. The turtle shells didn't glisten like they did the day before, but when I looked at the photos, I was still happy....just imagine how much brighter they were yesterday.
