My wife and I went to a friend's wedding in Hawaii a few years ago and we took the opportunity to explore the beautiful islands. One of our favorite experiences was to see and swim with sea turtles. We saw a bunch of them resting on rocks next to the beach and then later that day we went out snorkeling and got to swim with one! They looked so peaceful and gentle and swam very effortlessly. It did not seem to mind our presence there and at points it came to us getting pretty close. I will forever remember that encounter.
