Mark just spent the best twenty dollars ever – for me to snorkel on Dominican coral reef. It was an electric marine display which all went really well until something grabbed my left leg. Knowing Mark was not with me I computed that none of my other swimming companions would do this and so ensued a manic panic swim back to the boat. Whatever it was had a good grip and would not let go even once back at the boat. I held onto the side of the boat and shook and hit my leg whilst the captain looked on. I knew there was a reason I don’t usually where flippers – they collect bloody seaweed!
