1,000 Words: Snorkel Girl


I caught a lot of flack over posting this picture.  Some friends wondered why on Earth I'd allow such an unflattering picture of myself to go on Social Media, let alone make it my profile picture.  When others look at it they focus on my unsightly appearance.  When I look at it, all I think of is fun and it always leaves me with a smile.  This is what I look like when I'm in my happy place. I've always loved to swim but adding the experience of snorkeling and it's a little piece of heaven for me.  I could float out in the ocean for hours, just looking around at the coral, rocks and fish.  Hell, even the sand is pretty out there.  I could never get bored.  It's the only time in my life where I feel completely away from it all.  For me, it is the perfect escape.   It is my utopia.

This picture was taken north of Kaanapali, Maui, Hawaii in March of 2013.  Despite the opinions of others, I hope to add many, many more of these pictures to my collection.
