My family and I went to Cozumel, Mexico this past year for vacation. I had been there before, but when I was only a child. It has been my favorite place in the world since I first went there. This time was extremely different, though.
The beaches are beautiful, but the real magic happened not to the naked eye, but behind glass. This glass was from the goggles used to see underwater. I was certified for diving and diving is what I did.
On every dive, it was like going to a different place, maybe some would call it heaven, with all the fish swimming around as angels, wathcing your every move. As the current swept everyone on the dive from one colorful reef to another, there were encounters with many different creatures, such as manta rays, a shark, and a sea turtle. These were the creatures of reality, who brought all our senses back and helped us notice that there are dangerous things out there.
When the dives were over, it was like God sent us back to earth to live again, but that little sight of heaven makes every trip worth it. Every magical encounter and every step into the water was another step closer to heaven, a deep blue heaven.
