So, we had another adventure out to East Bay on Sunday. Cassie, Ben, Stove and I went out snorkeling while a few others hung out on the beach. We came across a patch reef with a number of un-knocked, but still empty juvenile conch shells, leaving us all bewildered. When we got back to the center, we asked Alex, and he said it was probably an octopus.
Eventually it got too shallow for us to swim, so we meandered around a bit, coming across a couple of really small southern stingrays and an osprey as we headed towards a little stand of mangroves.
After that, we got the really bad idea to go snorkel out in the surf. Well, as it turns out, as we were all floundering about, trying not to drown or get washed away by the breaking waves, a shark was watching us. Because just as we broke through the breakers, we saw him swimming away. I would have gotten a picture, but I was too busy freaking out. But aside from that adventure, it was a pretty neat little snorkel adventure. and then we walked back, with Stove refusing to stand up and walk in when we hit shore.
