Me at Lake Whitney at the September 2000 swampdive.

 

Key Largo, May 12-14, 2001

John was down in Miami (South Beach ;-) ) for a job and I found a cheap ticket so I booked it - can't pass up diving in the Keys... We used Quiescence like I did last fall. They have small boats and are real relaxed, just like I want it to be. We did 4 dives - Molasses Reef, Benwood wreck, Elbow Reef, and Spurs. They are all real shallow (~30ft) but that fits me just fine - when doing UW video, you want it shallow (or use lights) to get the best colors. Check out FLKeysDivesites.com for a description of most divesites in the Keys.
I was feeling a little blue and had the remnants of the flu - what better thing to do, than some scuba-doo?? (Ouch, that was bad ;-) )


John, with Eric, a half-Swede we met on the boat, in the background.

Molly, Quiescence's resident dog - she loves the water.

And she loves to play in and out of the water

One of the cheaper accommodations on Ocean Drive...

This is what we went out in - and they didn't leave us there...

Watch out for the wild life

Barracuda...

Spiny lobster

Cute fish #1 - it's only about 3 feet...

Cute fish #2 - just look at the eyes of this Porcupine fish - like a puppy...

Trigger - blending in nicely among the coral

Trigger - sometimes its good to be flat...

My favorite - a Queen Angel fish - isn't she a beauty??

An Atlantic Spade fish

John - Ok, that is the under side of the housing...

John - and now I'm holding it up side down and pointing the wrong way...

John - am I supposed to hold it like this??? And look into the lens of the camcorder???

John - Ok, I guess I looked like a newbie with a camera - let's cover my face so he can't see who I am...

John - Ohh, is this how I'm supposed to swim with it???

Snorkel with the Manatees,
Crystal River, Jan 17-21, 2001

The more "exotic" fish pictures were taken at the Florida Aquarium in Tampa.


an alligator

Dragon Moray Eel

Leafy Dragon Sea horse

A couple of manatees at Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park.

Isn't the kerning between the L and the I a little bit to narrow...

Well, what can you say... Mike did fit in there...
