Yesterday I loaded up the kayak and went looking for the wreck I saw from the air. At first I didn’t think I’d find it, but after I got out to the wrong buoys, I saw the right one. It was a big wrecked sailboat.
After that I paddled out to the inside of the reef, very close to the wrecks at Wreck of The Ten Sail, the site where a sailing fleet wrecked a couple hundred years ago. The wreck you see here is NOT from those sailing ships.
It was a great day!
Today is the last day of my vacation, tomorrow it’s back to work.
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!
The camera is waterproof to 3 meters, (10 feet) which isn’t good enough for my needs, so I also ordered:
The 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!

Ships and boats
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.
Below is a video I took of more paddleboarders.. Contrary to what I said before, they made it look pretty fun!
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…
Yodito 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..
Baby Squid. as big as my thumb, hovering in mid water, I wasn’t sure I’d get good focus.
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.
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.
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….
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.
