Peace at Last

Ahhhh the peace, not a bloody human in site, I can relax, enjoy this beautiful ocean, day dream, hmmmmm, maybe I can go explore the reef, see what my buddies are up to. Eric the eel, Rodger the stingray, wonder what they doing today. “Hey Joey, hows you doing today”? That is Joey the barracuda, when you see him you know there are no humans around. Wait a second, I may have talked too soon. What that? damn it, looks like some boat or something. Fishermen, let we dive down a little, don’t want them seeing me, damn humans will catch and eat anything. OK they gone, back to my relaxing, ahhhhhhhhh.

Neighbouroooo its Monay Wake up and Live

Would it not be a great way to start the day watching the island get smaller as you row out to see, to the reefs so you can go snorkeling. Ahhhh yes, nothing like the early morning, when the ocean is cool and clear, and schools of rainbow coloured fish dart around you as you swim through them. Watch a stingray float by as if flying in slow motion. Yes man, that would be a great way to start the morning, to start the week.
