Caribbean Blue and Stingray

This is a photo of one of the many delightful stingrays I encountered on my recent voyage. I took so many photos of them, kissed one, held one, and even had a stingray massage administered to my shoulders with the help of an attendant! Stingray skin is super soft on the underside, and this massage felt so weirdly wonderful, it gave me the giggles.

Abraham: my understanding is that the stingrays are different in the Caribbean and Australian, and he was trying to manhandle a Bullray which has a different body conformation. These Caribbean rays are gentle, but you still must be careful with them.

My first thought was the same as Abraham. Glad to know you've been swimming with a different stingray. What an experience that must have been.
