Went snorkelling. For three hours. I spent …. the entire time in the water. Because I love snorkelling. And my underwater camera.
However, I DO NOT like it when the people on the boat throw bread (or in this case, Animal Crackers) into the water around the snorkellers (is that a word? today I don’t care) making the fish* swarm. THAT IS TERRIFYING. And is how I got bitten when we were in Thailand. Apparently I am as pale as white bread. But paler than Animal Crackers so while I was terrified this time (swimming curled up like a ball, trying to not touch the fish, is REALLY HARD) I did not get partially eaten.
Diamondhead. The Volcano.
And here, for Leah’s viewing pleasure, are some underwater photos.
I turned around in the water jumped about a foot and squealed then without zooming in on my camera at all took this photo:
Have I mentioned that I love turtles? Turtles and squirrels and hedgehogs, oh my.
Sigh. I loved it. It wasn’t quite scuba but it was a third of the price and I was so so close to the turtles. I loved it.
While we were in the water some dolphins came to check us out. I only glimpsed them off in the distance but the noise they made felt like it was coming from inside my head, it was annoying and painful in that ears-popped kind of way. Horrible.
Once we got back on the boat we sailed around for a little bit on our way back to the island. We passed a boat made out of rubbish that had sailed from California to Hawaii.
It is actually made out of rubbish. The guy waved.
On the way back to shore we were joined by a whole pod of dolphins.
The flash of white is a baby dolphin. It was spinning around in the water.
And. I realised that my husband is awesome.
*Fish not fishes as I only really saw one type of fish.
Oh and I also have underwater videos! Which is the perfect excuse for me to finally work out how to use something on my macbook other than Photobooth. Herm.
