After a difficult day all around, I again retreat to the pool for an evening swim, watching sunset and fireflies rising. Afterwards, we are hooked on a NatGeo program about giant oarfish. Against the deep blue water, the silvery, reflective fish that undulate like ribbons and humans covered in grey diving suits both seem like CG constructs, not actual, living creatures. We are shown many other living wonders of the deep that are fascinatingly bizzare. But the King of the Herring, the great sea serpent is the star of the show as we both sit in rapt fascination and wonder.
