Before we actually got to Caye Caulker, we stopped at a place on the reef called Shark Ray Alley to do some snorkeling. This is my first *real* snorkeling that I’d done & I instantly feel in love with it. As the name implies, we pulled up & we could see tons of nurse sharks and other animals swimming past us in the water below. I was excited to get in the water & see them up close, as our guides assured us they were friendly & we were in no danger. I was excited to see some beautiful & vibrant corals one we hopped in, but disappointed that all the sharks took off.
Every now & then, a sting ray would glide by underneath & a trumpet (I think!) fish would swim by at eye level occasionally.
I was so excited to see schools of fish- I can’t imagine what it’s like to see a school with thousands of fish.
We were having a blast playing around with my underwater camera & being goobers.
Hubby is so at home under the water, playing around & finding a conch shell. Lots of fish gathered under the boat, including these pretty purple guys.
The water depth varied & we’d dive down to check out things. About a dozen people from our boat paddled around in the water & hubby saw a shark just as I climbed back in the boat.
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: February was an absolute success- tons of fun, family, friends, running, sleeping, photography, blog and more. March is shaping up to be pretty darn awesome too!
