Water is such an amazing thing. It covers 70% of the earth and there is so much we haven't seen in the oceans and seas. While walking on the beach, it is easy to miss stuff that is right in front of you let alone what is out in the ocean. These were on a rock facing the water. People were walking on the other side of the rocks on the beach and not even seeing these even though the water is very shallow next to them. It takes time, patience and relaxation to really see what is happening around us.

Living on a tropical island allows for interesting fruits. This is one - it is the soursop. We have had a twig growing next to the driveway. It was getting bigger and looked like a weed to us. Amazingly, this spring it started producing soursops. They are hard to find on the tree and we have yet to see a flower before the fruit appears. This is a young fruit and needs more time to ripen. Once it is ripe, you can eat it right away. It is custardy with many seeds inside.
