Adventures at sea

Last year, despite being a sea sick sort of person who couldn’t snorkle because I don’t like getting my face wet and don’t like sea water drying on me, I went on an all eay snorkelling trip. This year, despite the fact they can’t swim and don’t like going in water above their knees, I took my parents. 
The trip is run by a marine biologist. He catches things while you snorkle (or sit on the beach in my parents case), tells you all about them and returns them to the water. Apart from that one poor urchin that he cut open and everyone but us had a bit of a snack on. The poor thing kept crawling across the plate even while its insides were being eaten…
Anyway, here are some pictures:

Starfish, sea slug and that snack...

To my amazement, despite having to go thigh high in water and get wet shorts, my parents seemed to love it. So another good day here on Ithaka :o)

    Helen, I would love to see these pictures but they are showing up teeney tiny. Any idea why? Sounds like an amazing trip! I can’t wait to go away next week!
