What we could see in these perfect conditions was the most amazing coral bed. I wish you could see - the colors, the textures - a huge field of knotty, brain-like coral with sea anenomes tucked in here & there, and big (BIG) mushroom-like corals, and even some fish. It was like we were in a glass bottom boat. We were dry snorkeling. It was breathtakingly beautiful. What a treat.
And on we glided through this soothing and glorious morning. And, lo, what splash through yonder ocean breaks? It's two sleek, graceful Nai'a having a little morning frolic.

We hung out with the dolphins for a while (alas, no cows). Then turned around to paddle back across the stunning coral beds and awww, shucks - the breeze is kicking up and we paddle into the wind all the way back. Oh well.
You can't always have a lazy, lovely morning watching dolphins at play not 30 feet in front of you, now can you.
