Heart to Heart

In this very lagoon, which I would ultimately swim in five separate times over the course of the trip, I could hardly believe my eyes when I first slid in the water. How could it be possible that such a congregation of sharks, stingrays, and fish could all be swarming in this one spot? Time flew by as I continuously shot photos and videos, occasionally looking above my camera to observe my surroundings with a naked eye. With each visit, time slowed down a bit more and I adjusted to the vibrancy of this location. With experiences like this, I keep finding pieces of my heart scattered across the seas in all the creatures I meet.
