Little bit of fun

It’s not always work, sometimes there is a little bit of fun also. At some point the scales will tip to more fun than work but that will come in time.

Some most recent fun was a close encounter with a caribbean reef shark. While most people would be scared of sharks because of the older movies and news reports putting fear into the public about sharks, as a diver they are no real threat.  It is actually quite cool to see a shark in its natural habitat. Seeing one up close makes for a very surreal experience. Here is a recent photo I took of a very close encounter.



We took an airboat tour through the everglades looking for gators and doing some 360* spins to cool off in the heat.

The babies are always cute, until you take the tape off their mouths…

Alligators were fun to see and we got to learn a little about them also. Some are curious than others.


A ball python will not be in our near future as a boat add on.

While very beautiful, birds will not be on the boat either. They make too much of a mess.


More fun was with a red fox. Now not your typical color this white and black, red fox was very adorable.


We got to spend some time with an anteater.

We swam with dolphins and participated in some skills with them. (note: these dolphins were rescues, not taken illegal or purchased as some facilities may do, and the facility took very good care of them. rehabilitating them, nurturing them, whatever it took to make sure they were healthy)

The highlight had to be seeing a sloth in person.  They are so mesmerizing and adorable. Prepare yourself for some uncontrollable cuteness in the next photos:
