    Great pic Bruce. I imagine the elephants only worked for peanuts anyway.

  2. Hmmm. I love to snorkel. Wonder if I look like that!

    • Mayrah,
      I have never snorked, but always wanted to.

      • The Great Barrier Reef was one of my life’s greatest experiences. I constantly told myself to remember, to take in all the color and shapes and movement. By contrast, the southern Caribbean was a let down. I recommend you put the Great Barrier Reef on your bucket list. Recently, I saw lighted photos of snorkeling in the Red Sea. If I didn’t have to go to Israel to do it, I’d want to try that.

      • Wow. Great Barrier must have really been something. I suspect my bucket will be kicked before I have a chance to go there.
        I spent some time at the Red Sea when I was in Eritrea, but stayed on top of the water. Even so it was dicey. I almost got zapped by
        a horde of jellyfish, (those guys that sting you) when I inadvertently floated a few feet above them on an inner tube. Scarey!

      • We were water skiing on Matagorda Bay when a jellyfish got under my son’s life jacket. It looked like he was walking on the water before I could get the boat back to him. We carried meat tenderizer for jellyfish stings. Helps.
        If I can find recent photos of snorkeling at the Red Sea, I’ll send them along.

      • @Myrah’
        Ha! I know what you mean ‘walking on water’. I was paddling faster than blades spinning on a fan, trying to get back to shore and the wind was blowing me in the opposite direction.
        The sea was totally clear and I could see those things under me. Wow. I will never forget that. Did your son get stung?
