Diving With Sea Turtles- Moalboal, Philippines, Savedra Dive Center [Video]
We loved Panagsama Beach in a way that is hard to express. Was it that the kids were roaming for hours a night in the streets doing what kids are supposed to, getting dirty, playing chase, getting lost in hide and seek, and normal street-smartology that comes with life in the hood? Was it just how unreal Henry and Hermann the German and Lee from Savedra Dive Center were and how hysterically inappropriate and funny the times were with them? Was it Raffy the angel who taught us about seizures and love and being unmanly?
There was so much joy in that life in Moalboal at Anthony’s. Yes, there was the 60 year old expats with their 20 year old girlfriends and all that came with that. Yes. But, there were sea turtles. Oceans of them, almost every dive and that once when Solai and I were snorkeling right there off the shore, and how he slowed down and looked back at us, waiting for us to continue being with him. Yes, those 20-30 minutes were life-changing, and how Solai later told me, “Mom, I felt such a strong love between me and the turtle, like he was my best friend. I bet in some other life we were. Yeah, it felt that special.”
The Sea Turtle Love Affair
I swear I have amazing turtle pics, but not here so, and so, and well…. There are so many sea turtle moments, and whale shark, and thousands of sardine moments. Deep sigh. For now, enjoy this amazing video. I’ll put more turtle pics when I have them. In the video, I think the last 5 seconds are the most powerful. Maybe. You decide.
Your turn. 🙂 Gabi
