Pier Fun

As I was walking along the side of the Juno pier the other day I looked down and was excited to see several large spotted (leopard) rays diving to and fro. It was a beautiful sight! Unfortunately I had left my camera at home and my cell phone camera couldn't capture a nice shot through the water.

When I walked by later I saw the rays again, in the very clear water swimming just a few feet away from swimmers close to shore. It was like a ballet the way everyone swam circles around each other, without ever touching.

And it did remind me to go walking on the pier to check out what's in the water before I go swimming next time.
