Those who know me well, know my favourite colour is grey.
I'm a big lover of the dapple grey horses for their patterned coats.
I now have a new favourite pattern!

While in Isla Mujeres to swim with Whale Sharks we lucked into a wonderful sharp eyed dive master who found some Green Sea Turtles mating and helped us go into stealth mode to quietly sneak up and observe. So awesome!!!
