Hīhīmanu (Hawaiian Spotted Eagle Ray). This beautiful ray cruised with us for at least an hour during my moms second snorkeling experience here on Maui. Even though she couldn't dive down the ray decided swim right under her a couple of times. I could see her excitement as she'd pulled her hands towards her chest. It was so special to share this magical experience with my mother. It's experiences like these that I hope one day to share with my future children and generations to come.
The land, oceans, and all that this beautiful earth consists of is our home. This not only includes us humans, but the plants and animals that INHABIT earth as well. Together we all form an Incredible ecosystem. However without each other, our ecosystem, the land, the oceans, the earth, our home will fall apart. And that's why It is so important that we take care of each other.
