ScreenCaps From the Dive

Dropping along the edge of the island
and into the dark
This is below 400ft
Here my computer is registering 417ft 
On the way back up at about 260ft
The wall in the background about 100yards away-
the visibility gets pretty phenomenal down there!

Four Hundred and TwentyThree Feet

Today I completed what will probably be the deepest dive of my life.

82 minutes from surface to surface for about a minute and a half at depth
Sure was fun though!

Best Christmas Present Ever!

What do you get the guy who already has everything he wants?
A flight around the island!
The pilot took off and landed, but in between he handed over the controls to me,
so of course we flew all around Salt River
and our apartment,
Christiansted's harbor and the house we might be buying.
And Lisa managed to keep the screaming to a minimum
One thing that I was really excited to see was what the world looked like from 350ft up- the deepest I've been underwater.
We leveled off at 350 near Isaac's Bay and, around here, it looks like this-
I don't think I really understood how deep I have been until then.

Boat Parade '13

 We arrived early for what we consider to be the beginning of the Christmas season on St Croix,
but not early enough to beat the long lines for bucket rides.
 This year there were 20+ boats from giant
 to tiny,
 conceptual (dolphins pulling Santa's sleigh),
and even laser light shows.
After a couple of laps around the harbor everyone watched to the east for
After which the revelry continued into the night.
