Blog Neglect

After reviewing my posts for the past week, I am amazed that I forgot to tell you that last weekend I went diving, and flooded my video camera. I apologize for this gross oversight.

On the bright side, I’m getting a new video camera, and I expect it to arrive today!

Drift Ghost-S Action Camera

The camera is waterproof to 3 meters, (10 feet) which isn’t good enough for my needs, so I also ordered:

drift uw caseThe underwater case, good to 60 meters or 197 feet.

So I should be good to go again for awhile. This is a far superior camera and I was pretty impressed with the old one, so we’ll see how it goes! I know I’m gonna like it!

AND TODAY IS FRIDAY!

I was posting my morning post, uploading pictures when the internet quit. Now it’s working again but it’s time for me to go to work. Pics and a video for you.

More Paddleboarders

Tuesday Monday

It’s Monday, but really it’s Tuesday.

Yesterday was the best day of the weekend. We went to the beach and snorkeling.

Above is a photo and a super short (3 seconds) video of a triggerfish that hid as soon as I saw him.

And that’s about it. Also, last month, when The Wife went to Costa Rica, she brought me back a coffee cup gift from our cousins. It’s pretty  fancy, with the saucer and the spoon and everything…

markoffeeYodito means super strong coffee, and has something to do with iodine.

I have been working at the Airport for 6 months now. That means my probation is over. I have to get an evaluation to make it official. Today..

Four pics and two vids

Baby Squid. as big as my thumb, hovering in mid water, I wasn’t sure I’d get good focus.

Sponge

I call this piece of coral The Pinnacle. I have been swimming out to check it out as long as I have lived here.

These are artificial reef balls. Shaped like a gumdrop. Not much seems to be growing on them though.

Wordless Wednesday

For those of you who don’t know, when you don’t have anything to say, and it’s Wednesday, it’s legal to do a post called Wordless Wednesday, not to be confused with Silent Saturday. So since I have nothing to post about today, I’m just posting these pictures and I’m not saying a word.

Above and below are my attempts and over/under shots. You try to get the waterline exactly in the middle of the lens so that you can see both above and below the water. Dismal attempts.Camera 14MP-9PC

More Of The Same, And Then Some

Yesterday I went back to the same beach as yesterday, I went snorkeling near Spanish Bay and walked around a bit, taking pictures. While snorkeling, a frikkin remora tried to attach itself to me. Bastad. Normally they just keep hassling you but I kept chasing it until it went away.

Today I don’t know what is planned. Maybe go pick up a check. Renew the PO Box. Smoke a cigar….

Abandoned Spanish Bay Resort

Yesterday I rode my bicycle to the beach, I was exploring, looking for new spots and I went down this dirt road to a nice sandy beach. I found myself next to the old Spanish Bay Resort, which for reasons unknown to me, closed years ago. I went walking around taking some pics. From the road it is completely fenced off and kind of forgotten about.

Sad to see this great place falling apart. It is Caribbean, it’s not like the big hotels on Seven Mile Beach. I think this island needs more places like Spanish Bay was.

Friday Photos For The Weekend!

Not much to say today, glad it’s Friday!  Here’s a few pictures from snorkeling

These top two are Christmas Tree Worms. If you get too close to them they disappear by suddenly pulling themselves inside their tubes.

I call these gray fish “Happy Fish” because of their smiling mouth. The one below actually bit me on my knuckle. The yellow and black striped ones are called Sargent Majors.

I think these are a type of Butterfly fish, and are usually found in pairs

Have a GOOD WEEKEND!!

Lost and confused

WordPress has operated flawlessly since I started, then suddenly I’m having problems. Twice I’ve tried to publish a post and get “Invalid Request” when I push the publish button. It seemed like if I uploaded one photo, it would replace the previous photo. Also I lost two posts and couldn’t find them in my drafts.

Also, what’s the difference between “Post a Photo Post” Post a Video Post” and ” Post a Post Post”? I assume a video and photo lets me post one video or photo.

It seems like this morning I found several new places to post a post from. Now I have to figure out the differences and how to get back there again.

In the posts I lost were the pics above, (which I expect to be three across, side by side) and my sadness that Andy Griffith passed away yesterday.

Lets see if I can publish this post. This is too much to lose, and if it doesn’t work, I’ll be pissed!
