Underwater trip report
      #1735358 - 06/13/17 09:03 PM (24.18.33.109)

Just returned from four weeks in paradise. Did mostly lounging, eating and diving. Was able to get in 22 dives and took a few pictures. This along with a surprise 70 birthday all day trip around the island on a friends private 46 ft catamaran for just us and another couple traveling with us. She sure set the bar for when she turns 70 next year.
Here is a link to an album on shutterfly of some of my pictures. Just click on the upper right picture to open up the slide show. pix.sfly.com/DfpOXo6H

Underwater photos
Fixed it for a direct link.

Link works but looks like you have to highlight it to open it.

Thanks for the photos. Two more weeks and I will be getting 6 dies in on Island. So jealous of your 22. Hope you had great time.

What outfit you going with. I use Dive Adventures out of Simpson Bay Marina. They are great at finding photo opps if you can't find them yourself. The banded Jawfish was new to me. Would passed it by if it wasn't pointed out.

Ocean Explorers (Kim Sha Beach) with Jeff and Lu. I got certified with them in November. I am using a more basic camera system - the SeaLife micro 2.0
Making my life easy this time - staying at Royal Palm and walking to the shop each morning.

Thanks for the pictures! The arrow crab brought back memories. When we lived in Virginia, we had salt water tanks and we had an arrow crab at one point. I had Eric fix the post to make it a clickable link.

Thanks for doing that. I tried to highlight it but it always failed for me. Probably a glitch on my end.

Very nice. TY for sharing.

Of course, after seeing a few of them I may NEVER go in the water again......

I snorkeled over the Rhone on a BVI bare boat trip before I became a certified diver. Wish I was a diver then.
Still remember that T-shirt in "The Deep".

Thank You so much Carol for the link----and Thank You so much Scuba Man for the pics. We don't dive so to see what divers see is awesome!

I have dove the Rhone at least 15 times. The stern in 75' is really cool. Diving the shallow bow is very interesting and you can last more than 25 minutes. The mid section in about 50' is the rib section and very eerie. Love that dive.

I believe every man, including my hubby, could not keep their eyes off Jaqueline Basset's famous "wet T-shirt".
