“Below the Sea” from “The Little Mermaid” gave me the braveness to scuba dive for the primary time in Indonesia.
Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” was launched the identical month I used to be born in San Diego, California, in October 1989.
It was most likely the primary Disney film I watched, which can be why I’ve at all times believed that “life beneath the ocean is best.” For my entire life, I have been happiest by the water and was raised with a deep appreciation for the ocean throughout my early years in California and Uruguay. The primary time I ever snorkeled was once I was a pre-teen in Hawaii and I have been in love with the aquatic interest ever since.
However seeing the world of sea life that exists deep beneath the water in “The Little Mermaid” at all times made me need to go down additional than simply swimming on high of the waves.
In actual fact, the tune’s lyrics —”proper right here on the ocean flooring, such great issues encompass you” — at all times caught in my head. So once I visited Raja Ampat, Indonesia, I made a decision to search out the braveness to go scuba diving for the primary time, because it’s know to have probably the most numerous aquatic life on this planet.
The tune got here to life as I dove down into the biodiverse area and noticed black-tipped sharks chasing sting rays, loads of octopus, cuddle fish camouflaging to match their environment, technicolored nudibranchs, and a tiny sea horse.
The film stays a favourite, as does this reminiscence straight impressed by it.
