Love me some Bayahibe part V: STARFISH!

This was my favorite part of the excursion.  On the way back to Bayahibe, the catamaran stopped on top of a starfish colony.  The water was 6 - 7 feet deep and the starfish were EVERYWHERE and MASSIVE!
 
So this is how it works.  Step 1)  Dive down.


 Step 2) Gently escort a starfish to the surface. Step 3) Hold starfish and smile.

 
Step 4) Gently put starfish back.  Step 5 ) Repeat.


Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.  Repeat. Repeat.  The girls and Jon could have done this all day long!


The boy, when given the option between a bag of Doritoes and diving for starfish, went with the bag of Doritoes!


Priorities.  But he was as happy with his chips as the girls were with the starfish.




And, little Miss Thang was not going to be left out!


And now, onto one last stop . . .  the natural swimming pool . . . .  in the middle of the ocean.

See the people standing in the water, which is waist deep . . . in the middle of the ocean?


Oh, I almost forgot, here is a pic with Little Pickle and her "Best Friend for the DAY."  For those of you who don't know her, she makes a "best friend" wherever she goes.  Jennifer from San Francisco, if you ever see this, thank you for being so gracious with Little Pickle - all day long!


And that's it for the Bayahibe series. We sure did have fun.  Bayahibe, we'll be back :)
