#BlogFlash2013 Day 7 – Nature

When you think of nature, there are so many aspects to explore, so much you can write about. Seeing today’s prompt, I decided to focus on just one – a memory from the most wonderful holiday I’ve ever had; St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands.

I see Rays lazily weaving through the water; fish of all different sizes and colours, some darting away while others hang around to stare back. Plant-life clings to the rocks, barely swaying in the calm tide; crabs scuttle along looking for food and shelter.

Climbing back on the boat, we move to deeper waters. My heart fills with joy as Bottlenose dolphins, my favourite creatures, swim alongside, occasionally jumping through the waves.

Just one tiny part of nature, yet so beautiful, I’m rendered speechless.

  2. Ooh, you brought back some lovely memories. I spent January in New Zealand, and the last few days in the coastal town of Kaikoura (have a friend who lives there, lucky girl) where we went swimming in the sea with dusky dolphins. A truly awesome experience.
    I’d love to do it again, but I think I should practice my snorkling first – I was truly rubbish at it!

    • Sounds like your experience was just as wonderful as mine, Deborah! I’ve always wanted to visit New Zealand – even more so now! I wasn’t that great at snorkling, but I so enjoyed it! 🙂
