Thousands of Fry, all around.

Trunk Bay had no shortage of schools of these tiny fish. The pelicans knew it too, and at one point, I nearly bumped into one, as I saw little webbed feet paddling 2 feet in front of me while snorkeling.

Truly an amazing feeling, to float slowly, among so many living things, all around you, and if you don't move quickly, they don't get scared, and clouds of shiny silver fry form all around you. Reach your hand out, and the school parts, in a concentric withdrawal from around your hand and arm, communicating to each other with light pulses along their body lengths. Everyone should do this, at least once in their life, if they get the chance. Magical.
