In the Chesapeake Bay, you never get to see the bottom. What lays down there has always been a mystery to me, and will remain so.
In the Bahamas, that mystery has had its veil lifted and you can see exactly what is going on down there! Aside from the clear waters, there is so much life just inches below the surface.
We were wading through the shore at this small island at the northern tip of the Berry Islands and we stumbled upon this massive starfish. At first we thought this was a rarity to see such a big one in such shallow water, but that is not the case in the Bahamas!
As we walked, we found many many more starfish this size in knee deep water, just waiting to be marveled upon.
