For our short journey in Tobago, we’ll be staying with a super fella that could go by something along the lines of “the energizer bunny”, but we’ll just call him Duane. He’s a stand up paddle boarding, snorkeling, free diving, kayaking, island tour guiding genius that combines all of his hobbies to provide an incredible experience for visitors. What a wonderful place to have spectacular friends!
The first excursion had us driving to the starting point of a walk… to get to the starting point of a swim… that would get us to the starting point of the snorkeling. Tired yet? Nonsense, it’s play time!
This was the point on the barefoot walk that would have had my mom a bit skittish. Indeed, you’re looking at the remains of a snake.
You can clearly see Duane already starting to share his plethora of knowledge. So cool!
I took these to give you an idea of just how far out we were. This wasn’t your shoreline disneyland of a playground. I thoroughly enjoyed being encouraged to take the not so easy route to see what was beyond the sandbox.
This was a cool shot, Ryan caught me taking a photo of him taking a photo of me. You can see Duane’s arm in both pictures.
This made me giggle (like so many things), look how graceful these fine gentlmen guide through the water. Then there’s my defense pose after seeing an eel. We have photo reviews underwater. I love it.
I feel like the photo below exudes the natural high that comes from being active in the elements surrounded by healing saltwater and quality people. This picture also announces that my mask was too tight.
After an aquatic workout like that, a local meal with a few cold beverages seemed to be the perfect way to finish off the evening. At Joanne’s, they post what she made for the day and you simply pick whatever you’d like to fill your take away box. I went with a small portion of fish, provisions, peas and patchoi.
One must always appreciate a sunset! First night in Tobago… Magical.
