Kayaking in the Mangrove Lagoon

Eight of us went for a small adventure today, joining a kayaking tour of the mangroves lagoon in Cas Cay, including some time snorkeling.  We learned, among other things, that when the mangroves drink up the very salty water, they are able to separate some of the salt, and the rest they send to a few sacrificial leaves, so that the main plant can continue to flourish.  Three of our students had cameras and sent these pictures:
