Travel Pics Theme: A for Antigua. Starfish Kayaking

Antigua Kayak Starfish

The theme for our ‪‎travel pics this week is A – for Antigua – and this was taken as we steered our sea-kayaks around mangroves, and over the shallow coral reefs nearby.

We’d already been for a hike up the hill at Bird Island, and a snorkel amongst the coral just off shore – but this time, we were staying above the water.

If you’ve ever tried to wade or swim where there are mangrove swamps, you’ll know it’s not a pretty experience – besides being mighty painful if you scrape along the upturned roots.

But the coral here was just below the surface – which is how our guides managed to pick up this starfish, and pass it to my sister Lorraine.
