To ME, that is. Just downloaded disc from Sting Ray City and PJR's smile says it all! Will cherish that pic forever.
What a great picture! The water looks so clear - where was that taken? I can't believe you can hold the rays. I've heard that they are inquisitive but that's crazy! How fun!
That's an 'all-out' smile. And grandmother has a pretty good smile too. Those pictures show you were both having a great time.
You have a beautiful smile and beautiful hair. At the rate mine is greying I would have to be 100 to have your hair.
Great pictures, Glenda. My grandboys would love it.
Awesome pictures of both of you! What a fun memory.
Glenda those are great pictures, it looks like a lot of fun.
great pictures....you both look like you had an awesome time!! ;)
Glenda, I love seeing you so happy--grandkids can do that for ya'. PJR's braces are doing a wonderful job. I couldn't believe the difference they made with my GS Alex. Amazing, isn't it?
What fun to share with him! No wonder you are both smiling..
Glenda, what wonderful pictures!
I'm so glad that you two had such an awesome time!
Once in a lifetime! I'm so happy you shared it together!! What a fantastic memory for you both!
It does look like lots of fun for the both of you... and the crystal clear water - Beautiful!!
the pics show a super happy,contented Grandmother and a supremely happy Grandson-you're so very lucky to have that young man,Glenda!
What a happy boy and grandma!!
Great pictures Glenda. You are my new mentor grandma. I want Mia to have the same kind of grandma PJR has. That would be me of course. Following your lead. ;-)
Love it! Awesome grandma, awesome grandson, awesome memories!
Glenda --Where are we in the orthodontics timeline? Looking good! Have these manta's been 'de-barbed'?
Yes, that is a genuine "truly having a great time" smile! What a fun grandma you are!
Wonderful pics, Glenda....a memory to last a lifetime.
Stingrays can have their barbs removed but it would be inhumane to do so in the wild. They never use their barbs unless in fear for their lives. Skates look very much like stingrays and are probably used sometimes, in tourist attractions. Manta rays are quite different and have become rare. They might be a part of a very large observation tank in aquariums.
I lived for about 5 years just one little sand dune from the beach and soon became utterly charmed by the schools of stingrays that would come up to me when I sat in the shallows. They clearly liked being stroked and tickled. When I would stand up (slowly) to shuffle back to the shoreline, the whole mess of them would swim along while I walked. I'll never forget those years.
These stingrays did have their barbs, as shown by the guide.
I've done this excursion twice, 12 years ago, and this time with my grandson.
First one, we were told never to do this on our own, anywhere else. The guides were familiar with the stingrays.
rhizo -- Thanks for giving us that memory of you and your 'following'! I had no idea stingrays could be so tame.
Now I'm wondering what the differences are between 'stingrays', 'skates' and 'mantarays'.
What was the creature whose barb killed an Australian naturalist?
Please don't let this thread go DOWN regarding stingrays.
I shared my pictures of my special trip with grandson and his awesome smile.
Please if you want a discussion, start another thread.
Will be appreciated and thank you!
