That day in the keys when we were all mermen and mermaids.
We breathed underwater.
That day we went lobstering
and almost caught our limit.
That day we saw the lionfish,
and went lobstering some more.
That incredible day we got to swim with the manatee.
That smooth, fatty skin.
Feeding her lettuce.
That day we found all those star fish.
How we had to convince Cassie to leave them in the ocean so they could live.
That day we spent all day in the ocean.
Floating under the sun.
Breathing in that salty air.
