(I got sort of scared since they are poisonous.) I swam away around a corner of a reef, looked around for some more fish, and saw this beautiful purple octopus.
After about 15 minutes of following it around (I kept my distance so I wouldn't scare it), I looked at some awesome coral. It was bright orange, and if I hadn't studied it closely, I would not have found this sweet seahorse.
Then I decided I was done with diving for now and I would go to the surface and try something new. I concluded that I would take surfing lessons for the last half of the day. You know how guides give you all this boring information before you do the thing that you pay for? Well, he said something about not going out too far, but I didn't pay much attention to it, so that's why I got into a big mess with a HUGE wave. I was just paddling out to sea on my board, and suddenly I noticed that the sea seemed to be higher than I was. So I got on my board and hoped the wave would take me to shore. It was really freaky being inside a wave! After that adventure, I will listen to my guide ALL the time! Me in the big wave:
Sorry, I'm still shaken by my adventure, so I'll stop writing, have a bath, and go to bed. Have you guessed where I am? I am on the island of Maui in Hawaii. Bye!
