Every vacation deserves a good caftan. This was captured moments after we sailed past an erupting volcano under the stars.
These rare creatures float by like flying birds of the ocean, graceful and angelic- stingrays.

So proud of my girl, she snorkeled with penguins, sea lions, sea turtles and saw the complete circle of life, from plankton to sharks...blessed!
