But still a great view.

Leaky Truck

This is the gas truck that shut down Christiansted. 
It started leaking Monday morning and the brilliant decision was made to just let it leak itself empty while the police shut down a half mile radius around it for 2 1/2 days!
Obviously security was very tight.

Swim Around St. Croix

I volunteered to be part of the medical team for the Dolphin Swim Team's swim around STX event. They are raising money to fix their pool. Thankfully, there were no injuries so it was a pretty uneventful day. The scenery was great though!

Science Fair!

Lisa and I stumbled upon the wildly popular science fair last weekend.
A lot were really quite well thought out and many had to do with alternative energies and battery efficiency. Some were just taking up space. And a few were asking some hard questions,
with some hard answers.
But the question I wanted answered most was-
Where'd the frog go?

Not So Deep Dive

I noticed on Google Maps that there's a boat sitting on the bottom of the harbor.
so Lisa and I took or trusty little dinghy to go check it out.
After descending to a whopping 12ft of depth, we saw the bow take shape out of the murky water.
It was much less exciting than I had hoped. There's basically a big fiberglass hull filled with holding tanks, wires and cables, two diesel engines, a washing machine, and a ton of little reef fish.
I found out later that it sunk during hurricane (wrong way)Lenny in 1999.

Its Not Everyday That I Get Chased By A Clam

Oh look, Lisa's found a fire clam!
 They're so pretty. Just sitting there in the sand waiting for close up shots.
Then they attack!

My Mom Is A Superstar

This is her starring in the Marion Memorial Day Parade.

Placing a wreath that was as big as her in the VFW ceremony. 

Representing the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Making the front page of the Science Hill yearbook as the former homecoming queen at her 50 year reunion.

She's pretty amazing.

450 Deep Support

These are shots of me meeting up with Guy at 220ft in case he has trouble switching deco gases or has an IBCD problem.
 He was coming up from a descent to 450ft
 He says there was still no bottom to be seen from 450.
He plans to go deeper.
