We also didn't know that Maia has been listening to the stories about the Sea through the years--building her own image of what this fabled place would be, waiting for her own chance to create her own memories. Yesterday she snorkelled for the first time (up until then she hadn't really got the hang of it and tended to swallow a lot of water.) Then when we got home to the boat she paged through our old books, identifying for her first time damsel fish and trumpet fish, triggerfish and wrasse.
This morning when she woke, she rushed outside. "I can't believe I'm finally here!" she said.
