Rush of Water

This morning when I broke through the current I found immediately below me three Spotted Eagle Rays hanging motionless. While I had to swim and swim to get through the fast moving water, they only had to waggle their wingtips to stay in place. Each time I dove down to visit with them I rapidly slid back and had to work hard to return.

Often Eagle Rays at this location are oblivious to my presence, but today they swam off every time I got near. Fortunately, each time I made it back through the current they had regrouped to tempt me to dive down again. Our dance continued until they wore me out. I knew I could only make it back through the rushing stream of water one more time so I had to say "Adieu" as I continued my swim along the shore.
