Predawn paddle on shimmering seas.
I float with the sea. The sky envelopes me.
A baby bat ray dances, his ‘wings’ like tiny shark fins breaking the surface of the water. He swims toward me–another morning gift– and after a brief exchange of glances, he dives beneath my board and gracefully undulates toward deeper waters.
Blue-footed boobies dive for his breakfast. Their aqua colored feet always surprise me.
A pelican flotilla glides inches from the sea’s surface. How can they hold steady so close to the water?
I am so blessed to have these moments .. and thank you for letting me cryptically share them with you.
