I thought I would just take a quick moment to share with you what happens to your face while snorkeling!   Like your mother always told you…if you hold your face like that it is going to stay that way!  Thank goodness my snorkeling mask impressions when away!  I could have been a poster child for wrinkles!

 I am fair skinned and burn easily.  I had to stay completely covered in the Hawaiian sun.  What a get up!

It was like flying without being afaid of crashing! 

What  a magical world it is under the water’s surface.   I was hypnotized….mesmerized…enchanted!  I can’t wait for my next snorkeling trip.  

The sea turtles will always be my favorite!

 And as a finale to my blog……

I have been blessed by receiving this award from the Baskets by Rose. She has pick my blog along with four other blogs and gave us each our award. Please stop over and visit her blog

This was such a wonderful surprise to receive.

The Liebster Blog Award. Liebster is a German word which means “dearest” or “beloved”, but can also mean “favourite”. The aim of the Liebster Blog Award is to draw more attention to some really lovely blogs with 200 or less followers.

Hopefully the 5 lovely people you choose will give the Liebster to 5 blogs they like as well.

Here are the 5 sweet ladies I have given the Liebster
