Beach Fun!

This blog really is a journal for Michael and I’s life together. Love is a journey – with wonderful moments and difficult ones too.  Travel is not always picture perfect – there are many behind the scenes struggles as well. But, at the end of the day we’re both so grateful to have the life we do with each other!  <3 <3 <3

Michael loves to hang out at the pool at the beach!

This was a bit of a disappointment. Well, for me any sit-on-top kayaking isn’t really kayaking because sea kayaks are my boat of choice. But, I am in a kayak and I am paddling.  Next, I was only allowed to explore within a small area – where the current was strong, the water murky and not much marine life was to be seen.  But, hey…I was paddling!

Baby Blacktip Reef Sharks

The only item left on my Maldives wish-list was to see baby black-tip reef sharks who swim along the beach. This was a common experience shared by fellow staff as well as students at the American School of Doha, that I too was excited to see!  It was our last morning that I FINALLY was able to be at the right place at the right time at South Beach!

I had to take pictures with my camera, not my GoPro – because they were so skittish, it was impossible to get close!


Stingrays were there too!!  They were super skittish as well!

Beautiful Island!

Final Moments

We loved this adventure!  While we were here during the start of the rainy season, causing the waters to be murky for snorkeling – the island, staff and everything was a paradise of relaxation and water fun!!! As for how expensive is it in the Maldives – it is. We paid close to $400.00 CAD for two snorkeling adventures.  Each adventure about 3 hours long. We didn’t drink alcohol there, but if we did it would have been super expensive – a drink ran about at least $10.00 CAD!

Amazing Maldives!
