Last week’s blog, Taking a Week Off, was unexpectedly mis-titled. Instead of kicking back, my husband and I went to Cancun for a family visit. Our son Ben planned an outing for us to snorkel with Whale Sharks. Spoiler alert: Whale Sharks are neither whales nor sharks. They are gigantic fish who feed off plankton and could not be bothered with humans. They range in size from a small camper to a school bus. If you look carefully at the photo, you will see in the top right lit space, the faint outlines of some teeny tiny humans. Soon I hope to have some photos of myself snorkeling near one, but that could take awhile. I hope fear can’t be seen through a snorkel mask.

Bill marked up a photo of himself (small orange spot) alongside one of the Whale Sharks.
