Reverse angle- I was sitting on the small rock in the middle.

Times Have Changed

You may remember that when we first moved here Rascal was often pestered by lizards.

2 years later, it takes a lot more to get his attention.

And then he needs a nap.

Ruth Island

N 17.68414  W 64.76126
 A place where conch are cleaned,
ships are wrecked,
 and birthdays are enjoyed under a shanty on the beach.
 We had a great time cooking out and swimming
 with a bunch of friends
 'til around sunset when we climbed into a dinghy to be ferried back to shore.

Vertigo

I don't get many pictures of myself underwater.
This is about 150ft down at a site called Vertigo.
Thanks Jon!

SSV Corwith Cramer

 One of the people I took diving last week is the engineer aboard the Corwith Cramer.
 I asked if I could check out his boat if I had an afternoon off.
 He said okay.

Tide Pools!

Every time I've tried to get to the tide pools the waves have been too high to allow us to pass.
Not today.

Foggy Sunset

Apparently we missed several days of rain while we were gone, and then got a couple more days of heavy rain when we got back.
It looks like the whole island is saturated- I've never seen fog here before.
I'll bet the cistern's full!

Flying Home

and picking out new dive sites.

New Favorite Thing

Obviously my favorite thing underwater in Dominica was Lisa, but
 coming in at a particularly close second would be the Electric Rays! We ended up seeing 4 of them during our stay. They're also known as Torpedo Ray and, as it turns out, torpedoes got their name from the rays, not vice versa. 
They can emit an electrical shock ranging from 8 to 220 volts and it was extremely hard not to test it out. We were diving with 17 medical professionals (many of whom were emergency medical types) at a conference concentrating on diving related emergencies.
How dangerous could it be?!
Lisa said no.
