A surprise this morning

IMG_1733Good Evening, God!

I’ve been swimming for exercise for my frozen left shoulder . . . swimming in the shallows at Kaimana Beach. And most mornings there is a bridal couple from Japan posing for photos . . . and some mornings there is a sleeping monk seal. Of course, there are almost alway snorkelers, kayakers, folks on surfboards, swimmers and dog paddling people and occasionally a dog paddling.

But this morning I got a surprise!  This young man and a friend were coming back from spear fishing . . . clearly armed . . . and I saw them as I was breast stroking along. Caught a glimpse under water out of the corner of my eye, but it was enough to identify weapons!  Yes!  A surprise! Shock maybe. Although my brain came up with Spear Fishermen quickly enough.

It makes me feel so fortunate that I hardly ever see weapons.  Really fortunate!

As for the fish he had caught . . . I greeted him by saying, “You caught some!”  His friend said, “He’s even more surprised than you are!”  A good surprise — even though as a snorkeler I see fish as beautiful creatures to be admired.

Story teller,
