WhaleShark above me near Isla Mujeres They are so graceful that they look like they are barely moving until you try to swim with them, and it's tough to keep up!

'Daniel and (gentle) Goliath'
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!!!
