Michael on the Fair Wind II

While in Hawaii we all went on a snorkeling cruise, even Michael!
We were impressed with the crew of the Fair Wind II.  They were committed to helping every who wanted to, to get in the water.
 Our grandson, Michael loves the water but he has multiple disabilities the greatest of which is a sever cognitive limitation.
With flotation belt and inner tube, with parents holding on, he went into the bay.  He does not understand if we try to explain what will happen but he does understand that he can trust his parents to keep him safe.
Once he got used to this new experience he seemed to enjoy himself.
His parents are always delighted when they can find a new experience he can enjoy.
I was glad I had my new little waterproof camera to capture these images.

I was so caught up in the moment that the thought never occurred to me - camera, water, how did she manage these photos? Very nice.

What special memories your photos have captured. Michael certainly seems to be having fun. Well done for having a waterproof camera to hand. I would never be that organised.
