Aloha Friday #12

It is Aloha Friday! In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that people take it easy and look forward to the weekend.

Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your comment below and link in Kailani’s blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!
This week's question is:
If you had to live under the sea what kind of animal would you like  be?

I would like to be some kind of corals :)
Did you know that:
* coral reefs grow less than three centimetres each year;
* coral reefs are the largest living structure on the planet;
* 500 million people rely on coral reefs for their food and livelihoods;
* without the existence of coral reefs, parts of Florida would be under water;
* coral reefs have been used in the treatment of cancer, HIV, cardiovascular diseases and ulcers;
* It is estimated that coral reefs provide $375 billion per year around the world in goods and services.

  1. Oh! What a great choice! Corals are so beautiful and (now after reading your facts, I've learned...) they have so many uses that I never knew!

    Hm...I'd love to be a sea turtle...they look so peaceful and graceful under water.

    Blessings & aloha!

  3. Beautiful photos! This is a tough question since I don't like the ocean, and I'm a Hawaiian girl! *L* Just not comfortable in a boat on the ocean or surfing!

  7. Cute question. I have never thought about it. Possibly just a person snorkeling if that counts.

    Have a great Friday!

  9. I agree 100% it would have to be some kind of choral. Hmm or maybe a whale. I think they are so cool.

  11. That is an adorable Aloha Friday button! So stinkin cute.

    I would really like to be something like a dolphin or a whale (the whole not watching your weight thing is very appealling!) but then again you really made a great case for wanting to be coral too. I'm so confused!...
