FEELING THANKFUL I AM NOT A SCALED SARDINE

Had another great day of fishing/diving with my cousins this past weekend.  At one point we spotted this baitball about 17 miles offshore.  At first Tim and I were excited to jump in and photograph the scene until we noticed the dozen or so blacktips voraciously feeding alongside all the spanish mackerel.  After watching the […]


Flourishing Ocean

Bonaire is Something Special

It’s quite easy to conjure up a lot of wonderful things to say about a dive trip to the island of Bonaire.  That was my impression after hearing others discuss prior trips they have taken there over the years.  Cindy and I just returned from our first trip to Bonaire and I now understand what […]
