793. A Joyful Swim: a meditation and soothing child’s tale

Shayla Shark decides to travel to the other side of the reef with her friend Sean Shark. What kinds of creatures will they see?

Narrator: Male

Story Begins: 4:09

A Joyful Swim Excerpt:

It was a hot day on Ahway Island. The sky and the water were both a brilliant azure blue. It was so warm that all the sea creatures came out to have fun. No clouds were in sight—just the fluffy feathers of happy seagulls flying high above the sparkling waters.

Today, Shayla Shark was swimming around the coral reef, not too far from her home, and not far from the Ahway Island shoreline. It was nice and warm near the shallow waters, so Shayla thought it was the perfect time to take a little swim. As she went, Shayla was careful not to bump into the beautiful, living coral that was part of the reef.
