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!
Fish in a wall
More upside down fish. Do you know what they’re really called?

I’m officially on vacation for two days! Who hoooo!
Back to work today. What a weekend. Saturday flew by. Saturday I looked at my watch and it was 11:30, five minutes later, it was 2:30, and five minutes after that it was 5:15! Today they should be delivering the boat we won, Holy Cow, it’ll be real then!
Sunday we went snorkeling, and The Wife tested out her new Underwater Camera, a Nikon AW 100. Blue.
She got some good shots even though visibility was crappy.
Yesterday I let the chickens out around noon, and when we got home from the beach they were nowhere to be found. We were afraid we lost them but at sunset, all four came home and didn’t even try to get away when I picked them up and put them in their cage. It was very pleasing.
There has been another lost chick around all weekend, this morning I put her in the cage with ours, She is barely bigger than an egg. The Wife won’t be pleased.
It rained hard this morning but now it’s all clear… Scooter or car? Scooter or car?
HAVE A GOOD WEEK!

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.
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.
Smith Cove at Lunchtime
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.
Today is the first day of winter, sounds ominous, but really it’s the day the days start getting longer again. I’m glad for this. It’s hard to wake up when it’s still dark..
What do you think of all the doomsday people, saying the Mayan Calendar predicts the end of the world today? I think it’s the same as going up into an abandoned house, seeing an old calendar on the wall, and saying “The people who lived here thought the world was going to end on Dec 31, 1998!:
Below are some underwater pictures from my lunchtime snorkeling this week.
Hope your world doesn’t end this weekend and that you have a good one!
