Puffy the Octopus is Back!
Puffy is back!
I am so delighted! Overflowing. ?
It was such a mystery when he vanished for 9 days.
Today he spent 20 minutes with me! At least three times the amount of time as before.
It’s like he missed me. I cannot believe how many colors he changed and how long he spent swimming below my hand and sitting with me. ?
I alternated between watching him and snapping quick bursts of photos. Each new color or shape so delightful, more photos were needed. Puffy swam slowly below me and moved from coral to coral. I was grinning as he graced me with his presence and friendship there at the marina dock. He’s such an alien creature but he’s become a friend.
It was a funny encounter because the marina dock was super busy when I first spotted little Puffy hiding among the colorful corals on the dock. People were preparing for boat trips and wheeling grocery carts around with fishing stuff. A car rumbled down the dock at one point (which Puffy didn’t like) and people were out walking. I didn’t care. My little friend was finally back and I wouldn’t miss this for the world.
I laid down on the dock on my belly and the whole world disappeared for 20 minutes. It was just Puffy and I. He stood up as tall as he could and then did lots of cool things to make sure I noticed him. He spent much longer than he ever has swimming below my hand, showing off his colors, and simply looking at me. It was amazing and I am started to wonder if he feels something for me! He sure acts like he does.
This is so incredible. 🙂 I can’t believe this is happening to me.
Please enjoy all the photos from our visit.
