Stingray City, Antigua

I have tons of pictures from this cruise I took in November! My parents are the best in the world, and they took me on the holiday of a lifetime around the East Caribbean. I want to start with the morning we all agreed was a high point of the trip ~ snorkeling with stingrays in Antigua. I had three diving experiences during this cruise, but this one was with my parents, and it was the most surprising, and the stringrays were so beautiful and exciting.

A picture of our souvenir pictures. I didn't want to pick up a stingray without obtaining its consent to do so, but I found it difficult to resist when one was handed to me and remained docile in my arms. It was cuddly.


My friend Mauricio took these on his GoPro.




You probably know this about me, but snorkeling is my favorite thing. After skating... or maybe tied with skating. I could do it every day. I love to chase fish, fish doing fish things, pretending I'm a fish.

Beauty in the sea.




Really huge brain coral.




Don't you love them up close?
