Sharks rays and turtles!

While Couchsurfing in Placencia, Belize last week, I received the opportunity to get out on a snorkeling trip to Laughingbird Caye. My past snorkeling has been from a boat and the opportunity to snorkel from a gorgeous white sand beach on an island in the barrier reef was quite a treat. As an added bonus, we chose to continue on in the afternoon to another spot where we got to snorkel with sharks, rays and two sea turtles, my favorite!

I owe thanks to Jeff, our Couchsurfing host who let me tag along as his guest on a trip he won at a charity event. It was an amazing day and I am very thankful for the opportunity (and the underwater photos).
