So yesterday I went to the beach, which I love because ever since as far as I can remember I have been fascinated by the ocean, especially sharks. As some of you may or may not know I was born in Cuba and went to the beach very frequently. However, probably because I never ventured too far out I only saw the little fishes, the occasional crab, and I once saw one of these: Then after coming to live over here in Miami, atfer about 5 years of only going to pools, I finally started going to the beach about two years ago. I always ventured out with my diving mask but nothing. Until last year, I finally came across something. A stingray: Not that type. but yes a stingray. I'll never forget it because it was something I had always dreamt to see in the wild. Then yesterday, I saw this weird ass fish, which I had never seen anywhere. It was swimming amongst algae and it was colored like the sand, and had these strange crab-like legs in each side of its head. I was hoping one of you might know what it was. Weirdest thing I've seen. Then I came across TWO stingrays, the second one scared the crap out of me because it suddenly darted between me and the one I was following. Always mindful of the venemous tail, I kept tracking it, however, I lost it amongst all this algae and marine plants. I was gonna look for it, but I didn't like how it got dark due to the plants and how I was kinda all alone. I turn to my right cause I FELT I was not alone after all, and lo and behold, there's a FUCKING BARRACUDA looking right at me no more than 2-3 feet from me. Strangely, I wasn't scared, but rather startled that the damn thing would be so close to the shore. I inmediately trashed my arms around to retreat and it instantly swam away from me. I then quickly swam several feet away from the spot where I had found it because well I don't know much about barracudas and I don't trust them. It wasn't that big so it was probably a juvenile barracuda looking for food or something. Didn't find anything else after that though, but this was surely a very rewarding experience. Don't know if you guys are in the least bit interested by this but hey, just thought I'd tell y'all. I've got this annoying sunburn in my back however. Probably because of how my back was always towards the sun as I was exploring.
