Dave jumped in the water as I finished my fanta.
Then his head popped out and said: “hey there’s a manta”.
We all looked around with Dave’s tendency to joke,
No one was sure if they could believe the bloke.
We dawned our gear as fast as we could,
With this opportunity, we knew we should.
We got off the boat at record speed.
Cause logging a manta is just what we need.
The manta swam into the blue and we thought we missed him,
Then turned around, and for Joe’s birthday, he kissed him!
For six minutes or more, she circled around us.
We were so excited, we almost cussed.
He sailed gracefully away, great story for later,
A truly great experience above the equator.
We finished the dive and headed to shore.
More memories from Kids Sea Camp–
we can’t wait for more!
