The sand was white, the sea was a beautiful azure blue and the sun was shining. Sitting beneath a palm tree for a bit of shade, she finished her book and looked around for something more active to do.
Over by the shore, there was a man with a creaky old boat. He made eye contact and smiled, so she went for a look. The price was reasonable, and she climbed aboard. As they pulled away from the beach she looked down. Through the glass bottom, beneath the surface of the calm sea she could see the coral reef. What a lovely surprise!
