On a Calm Day, You Can See Forever

On rare occasions when there's not a trace of wind and the water turns glassy, you can see every pebble and blade of grass in the water. Today was such a day. Standing on the bow and peering below as we motored along, it was like looking down into a giant aquarium. Even at depths of 40 feet we could see conch and starfish on the bottom. Barracuda and triggerfish and a nurse shark swam away as we approached. It was mesmerizing. No where else in the world have we experienced such clarity of water than in the Bahamas.
