Last Day in Paradise

I’m writing from Vancouver, but wanted to post some pictures up of our last day in paradise at our Puako house, in fond remembrance.  The entire day consisted of AMAZING snorkeling (we searched + did not find our shark again, but instead swam with a school of unicorn fish), reading + hanging out with my turtle buddies.  Paradise, indeed.  I’m so sad to have left it, but now it will always be a special place where Jeff + I will always return.

Here is a photo I found on the internet which is a really accurate representation of the marine life we snorkeled with in Puako.  I’m not even exaggerating. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We came upon a couple of turtles having their shells cleaned by surgeon fish + tangs.  So exciting + fascinating to watch.  Again, not our photo, but a great example.

 

 

 

 

 

When the turtles are munching at the moss underwater, every once in a while they would bring their little heads up for a breath.  I would wait with anticipation for that moment, like the patient naturalist that I am.  DSC02487

 

 

 

 

 

 

This little piggy was chowing down like it was his last meal for god’s sake.

Out cold.  A most uncomfortable looking snooze.

 

The day we left the island, I went outside for the last time to say goodbye to our beach + to my turtle companions.  It was high tide + I saw a group of three having their breakfast.  I became teary eyed + went back inside.  I hope to return to swim with them again.
