Always a Good Time to Go Snorkeling in Hawaii

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

For the first time in a long time, I left the house yesterday without my cellphone, keys or bag. Our houseguests, Josh and Vika, suggested a snorkeling trip south of Kona. Since they were driving, I figured I didn't need anything. To leave the house without important items to keep an eye on is a bit strange for me. Exhilerating, though.

During our snorkeling adventure, I once again happened upon a remarkable event. A giant manta ray! With a back that looked like if I petted it, the skin would feel like velvet. I swam with that ray for a long distance, almost swimming over it until it began to rise to the surface. Probably to escape this crazy woman. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Happy Labor Day From the Big Island of Hawaii.

Beth Atalay We stopped at Huggos for a quick bite after snorkeling and before we went boogie boarding at White Sands. The waiter mixed up our orders and said my fish tacos were free. Like I told him, that was a good thing since I didn't have any money with me.

It's always nice to occasionally unplug from the matrix and leave a cellphone behind.  I make a point of it everytime I go to the pool to swim laps.  It's my "zen" time, which keeps me from needing more "zin" time!
