heading out to deeper waters

royal blue
mint green
these are the colors of my sea
the deeper you go 
the deeper the blue
they don't call it the deep blue sea
for nothing!   

yesterday we rented a boat at turquoise bay
and headed out to the reef
alejandro, our guide has lived on the
island for over 25 years and knows 
the reef like you and i know our neighborhoods.
it was amazing!
he took us to an area that was affected by an earthquake.
you could see a huge crack in the coral,
we didn't see alot of fish but the reef was
alive with color:
mustard yellow ,
deep purple sea fans.
orange brain coral
light blue coral tubes
and sea fans of so many brilliant colors
waving gracefully against the backdrop 
of the aqua that i was at times
overwhelmed with the beauty!

we also saw a lion fish which will need to be declared 
to the marine park as they are very aggressive 
and eat little fish and they aren't welcome
in the area.

all in all 
it was a fantabulous day
and our guests had a total blast!!
