Snorkeling With A Sea Turtle


Snorkeling With A Sea Turtle, originally uploaded by Marc Shandro.

Nicola finds a sea turtle on her first snorkeling experience!

Our special "one kid at a time" trip with dad started with Morgan when she was 11. She chose to see Florida -- Disney World, Cape Canaveral and Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge. When Aaron turned 11 he said "I want to see the Grand Canyon", so that's where the two of us went -- for a two week road trip through Arizona and New Mexico (you can see some of those pictures in this set: www.flickr.com/photos/mshandro/sets/72057594127634638/. early on in my Flickr days.

For Nicola's trip, she chose to see Hawaii. We spent 2 weeks exploring the Big Island together in February 2010 and had a wonderful time! We stayed close to Kahalu'u Beach Park near Kona where the snorkeling here is "one of the nicer spots on the Big Island" (as mentioned in the Big Island Revealed guide book -- recommended).

I've been away from the Flickr scene for too long now! I'll slowly put some more up from this Hawaii trip... when I get back from San Francisco with Morgan. Now we're starting a Grade 12 tradition...
