"From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to Earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free."
-Jacques Yves Cousteau
Over the last week, I had the amazing experience of sharing these same experiences with my two oldest daughters. While we spent plenty of time relaxing on the beach and soaking in the south Florida sunshine, I feel most blessed and energized to have passed on the wonders of snorkeling in the Florida Keys to my kids. Hopefully they'll find inspiration, beauty and questions about the ocean that will carry with them into their adult lives.
Isabel and Hannah insisted that we take our snorkel trip on a sailing catamaran so we could say we have sailed in the Keys, if only briefly. They've always both liked the look of the big cruising cats (think Lagoons and Leopards) and have wondered what it would be like to ride on the bow trampolines while under sail. Well, we can consider that itch scratched now too.
Anyway, here's a few pictures from our time under the sea...
