The man was visiting us, while the woman was taking pictures of us (about 200 pictures) From the birth of oysters on the roots, through baby jellyfish and pelican nests, it was an extraordinary day. We paddled from mangrove to mangrove through small canals. Sometimes in the shade, sometimes in full sun We even bathed in this water at about 35 degrees. We finished the walk under a marquee to exchange our impressions over a good cold beer and a tray of fresh cut fruit offered. A truly unforgettable day. (thanks to Indiana who served as our interpreter)
