Swimming with the Stingray - click on photos!


Today the ocean was smooth as glass. The sun was shining and at one point we were on our patio and looked out and saw this huge stingray swim along the shore. The people in the water were unaware of it. Here you see a man playing in the water with his kids. Eventually the stingray noticed them and turned and headed out to sea. Later in the afternoon we were very courageous and went swimming again ;-)
Heute war der Ozean spiegelglatt u klar. Die Sonne schien u um die Mittagszeit waren wir auf der Terrasse u sahen einen riesengrossen Stachelrochen am Ufer entlang schwimmen. Die Leute im Wasser haben ihn nicht gesehen u weiter Ball gespielt etc. Irgendwann ist er dann abgedreht u ins Meer geschwommen. Am Nachmittag dann sind M. und ich totesmutig ins Wasser denn es war heiss!!

We have a little thing we do before walking into the water...It's called the "stingray shuffle"....it scares them away :) So glad your having so much fun....:)

Courageous...I would never go swimming in there.I did not even swim in the Dom.Rep.in the ocean, only in the crystal clear waters of the island.I hate open sea.An encounter with a thing like that..I would freak out.

Thats cool, you can see the sting ray form so far up. In the picture with you in it, if you enlarge it, theres something near you.... do you know what it is?

Anika said...

With my last comment, is it a stingray?!
