This was some of the most beautiful scenery I’d ever experienced. One night we docked in an inlet of an uninhabited island. We were the only boat there. The snorkeling was said to be some of the best in the world and as we prepared to go out we asked several questions about the sea life and what to watch out for. There were no sharks, said our sailing shepherd, low currents and that was about it. We swam off to the inner rim of the inlet to see what was there. I spotted my first cuttlefish trilling happily through the currents like a motorized bath toy. I spotted a long spined black sea urchin that I knew was poisonous from studying Marine Biology in college and from SCUBA diving (insert cartoon tires screeching to a halt sound track here). Whoa, whoa, whoa….poisonous sea urchins? Hold on, did Skippy the Sailor Boy not just tell us that there was nothing to worry about it?
