An unbelievable experience plunges guests into marine life at the Manta Resort off the Pemba Island on Africa’s East Coast. There are crystal waters and romantic beaches, adventures to tackle and an untouched coral reef to gush over. Yet the most unique feature has to be the “underwater room” hands down. Submerged 4 meters beneath the surface is a whole world of wonder and beauty soothing you to sleep by its tranquil creations slowly swimming by or waving softly against the currents. By day, the deck upstairs is furnished as a luxurious place to lounge and kiss the sunbeams, to take in panoramic views perfectly undisturbed in the middle of the ocean.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
