Grace doesn't always mean peace

Sea Lions are incredibly graceful. But as most divers know, their playful antics can really disturb the peace. And if a bull Sea Lion is present the disturbance isn't always playful. Getting body slammed by a 600 pound animal isn't as much fun for the slammee as it evidently is for the slammer.

Two other things that I find very graceful underwater and that do produce a sense of peace:

The undulations of an Egg Yolk Jelly and flowing fronds of Bull Kelp ~ as long as you don't get tangled in either.
