Happy FRI-YAY friends!
What are everyone's plans this weekend? The Midwest weather seems to be finally transitioning into that warmer spring weather and I'm hoping to be able to enjoy some of it! I'm taking the train into Chicagoland this afternoon to see my sis who I feel I haven't seen in ages! See you soon, sis!
I was discussing with J on a topic for the blog and I came up with something I have overlooked amongst the excursions roundup I did! One of our favorite activities to partake on while on vacation is snorkeling (obviously in warmer climates only!). We have been to some incredibly beautiful places where there are some amazing spots to go enjoy some great snorkel and I'd like to share a few with you all!
In the beginning of our adventures, we would rent snorkeling gear at the local shops on the beach or the umbrella crew. However, as we have advanced in our travels, I received a snorkel mask as a birthday present a few years back and Jason utilizes his late Grandfather's set - fins too! I have also acquired snorkel socks to help protect my feet from rocks or possible creatures I shouldn't come into contact with. Click here for my mask and here for my socks! It just made sense for us to purchase our own gear with the fee rentals and sanitary reasons. Another investment that we made was an underwater camera; click here for ours. We bought this when we were in the Cayman Islands. You could also purchase a waterproof phone case - see one that I linked under my "Favs"! Although the underwater camera doesn't provide amazing pictures, it definitely has provided some very unique pictures - see below!
Ultimately, I think that snorkeling is a great excursion that you can partake in in many places! We have gone in not-so-great weather even! Also, it is something that most beaches will offer if you don't have the gear with you! Pro Tip: Locals are great to chat with if you need ideas of where to go and what to look for.
Have a fabulous weekend!
An adventurous soul, a kind heart, and a sarcastic mouth. You never know which you will get.
