This is probably my favourite photo from our trip last week. Paradise found!!

This was taken on Fanning Island (part of the Line Islands which are actually coral atolls) in the Republic of Kiribati. It can be found over 1,000 miles south of the Hawaiian Islands – almost on top of the equator. It was hot the day we were there and humid. Perfect day for a swim! The water was so salty that we floated quite effortlessly. It was worth the two days at sea down and the two days at sea back!
