I grew up on an island where we were often fishing with nets. Not only fish were caught in the nets; the could be crabs, shell and other creatures from the bottom. Sometimes there would be corals, “sea trees” that we called them. They were often big and had bright red, yellow or other colors, that after a while would fade away. In my fantasy they were greetings from a mysterious world deep down there, colorful and fantastic, unlike the world we lived in.
