in 2013 the whole family travelled to Mexico in celebration of my beloved…

we had a great time and did many fun things…

this picture came up in my feed today…

we walked along the bottom of the sea to see stingrays… before we went down we told the staff that I am claustrophobic and might not be able to participate for the whole time…

I was afraid, but went ahead… they help you put on the helmet (that weighs about 60 pounds), and climb down a ladder until you reach the sea floor… then walk alongside a bit of a rail… the water was moving a lot and we had to hang onto the handrail… once we reached a certain spot they had us stop and look beyond the handrail… the staff were swimming around with treats and bringing some of the stingrays over for us to see and touch…

the top of them felt like sandpaper while the bottom was as soft as velvet

I thought the divers came by to see me once or twice to be sure I was okay, but after we got out of the water the girls told me they were beside me every minute or so, lol…

after we were done I felt very brave and proud that I had actually done it…
