Swimming in Yal-Ku

Swimming in Yal-Ku

Today I was really excited about swimming in the Yal-Ku lagoon.  A lagoon is a lake with the sea and a river running into it. It’s a great place to snorkel because there are loads of fish.image

The most exciting bit was swimming around the Mangrove roots; loads of fish live in and out if the roots to protect them from predators.  The roots looked like crooked witches fingers dangling down like slimy serpents.  The darkness looked like an everlasting black cave that would devour me for all eternity.  I felt so scared that I didn’t even touch the roots.

Found the poolimageimageimageimageBella and Oscar arrive safely in Akumal. Akumal is the Mayan word meaning turtle. Highlights so far include snorkling with the turtles at 7.30am, trying Mexican sweets, and exploring Yal Ku lagoon. Internet providing some school work describing their adventures so far will follow!
