Snorkeling!!!

A very angry peacock flounder just after fighting another peacock flounder...apparently when they fight, they turn very dark.
    The water outside out house had calmed down, but still not enough to do some snorkeling...so it was off to the public beach on the north shore to do some snorkeling in the area protected from waves by the concrete dock. We fed the fish some bread (which always helps bring whatever's in the water around you for some good pictures), saw two peacock flounder in the middle of what seemed to be a territorial battle, a stingray with a pilot fish, and a bunch of parrot fish, including the largest parrot fish I have ever seen in the wild (I've seen bigger at the Xel-Ha water park thing in Mexico, but I don't consider that "the wild" seeing as the fish are fed dog food from the docks and all of them are abnormally large in size).
I also decided that I have an addiction to stalking/chasing beautiful parrot fish, taking pictures, and getting completely distracted by them for long periods of time.
    I had taken the best fish picture EVER of a huge parrot fish...and then when I went to show my dad (who was excitedly fishing off the dock after catching a silver jack from our backyard earlier that morning) I deleted it accidentally. I therefore had to go back in the water, and I ended up seeing the stingray my dad had seen before he got out to fish, as well as a few other fish I hadn't seen earlier.

    After I got a few more good pictures of the large parrot fish and the stingray, we headed over to the Brac Reef Resort, once again, to play in the sand and relax while taking in some sun. We lay around, went in the water, attempted to make a drip sand castle, and took some naps. When we left, we saw a car that had the coolest sun blocker in the windshield. It was of these evil looking eyes and made the whole car look like it was about to attack. Pretty cool.
    When we got home, I finished the puzzle that I had been working on every evening for the past 4 days. I was starting to get pretty sick of it...haha.
