Welcome to my s~A(R)T~urday linky party – today: Bonaire Underwater World
“Art attracts us only by what it reveals of our most secret self.” ~Jean-Luc Godard ~
As some of you know we are currently on our yearly vacation on Bonaire. It is warm, it is sunny, it is great for windsurfing and has a gorgeous underwater world to discover by either diving or snorkeling. What’s not to love about it? Well, yeah, those days when there is not enough wind to be really surfing. But those are the days you go underwater, to cool off and to enjoy the sea life.
Honestly though, I think I am having the laziest vacation ever. And I mean it. Yes, we have been windsurfing and / or snorkeling everyday, but there are still hours in between to fill with something. Well, that something in my case was – nothing. I did not draw, except for a few mini sketches for the game, I did not blog, I did not take photos – except for with my iPhone, I was simply being totally, utterly lazy.
A shady hammock also doesn’t help any sort of productivity – just sayin’.
I guess one could argue that I needed this. My body and mind needed to get away. Yet, I don’t think I have been away long enough yet, because I still don’t really feel like doing anything. This, as you may have noticed, includes making my blogging, commenting rounds. Most especially on your art that you linked here last Saturday. Thank you for not forgetting about me and my space here. I promise I’ll be back to ‘harass’ you in no time.
And in that spirit I decided to also post today’s Saturday art. Of course, with a Bonaire twist, showing you some of the underwater world we experienced. All photos in this post, and dare I say there will be more, were taken in Lac Bay, Sorobon, where a barrier reef shelters the bay from the open ocean. You can take a long walk through the sandy, shallow part of the bay, which is great for windsurfing, up close to the reef where you can snorkel amidst a myriad of juvenile fish.
I was lucky enough to spot an octopus. That was the excitement of the day and I am still seeing it in my head how he gracefully hovered from one coral to the next, snuggling then into it. What a sight. You can see one of the (iPhone) photos I took of him in the gallery below.
Please click on one photo to enlarge it and then you may scroll through all of them with the arrow keys.
That’s it for me for today. Have a great weekend!
