This past year, we sailed to St. Helena while crossing the Atlantic from Walvis Bay, Namibia to Bridgetown, Barbados. St. Helena is an amazing place, filled with beautiful hikes, kind people, and an incredible history. They are also known for their whale shark season.
On our last day there, we went whale shark diving and it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. They are beautiful in photographs but actually being under the water with them, they are truly magnificent. I hope I never forget that feeling of peace that I felt when I followed one that I named "Belarus" down and down, heading to the ocean floor. It was truly an indescribable experience that I will treasure for the rest of my life.
