    Default Another Great Trip to the Keys

    Except a small screw up had me loosing my camera for almost the entire week and my flash for the whole trip. I missed some amazing shots on Plateau Reef, including 3 lionfish that would have made great pictures. Of coarse I reported them so I'm sure they are no more. Anyway I am sorry for the poor color. I missed my flash!

    It was good to see so many fish have returned after the winter kill two years ago. Still not so many big ones but a lot more than last year.

    Bad picture but cool cleaning station. I was fun to just sit there and watch the fish line up.

    It was the day after Lobster Mini Season. This big guy was out just to say I’m smarter than you.

    Thank you! You are lucky!! We stay in Islamorada. I like the diving in the Northern Keys better than the southern ones.

    Relatively speaking it is the cheapest best diving in the USA. You would enjoy it.

    Thank you, if only I had my flash it's true colors would have come out. Unfortunately for us a entire school of them surrounded our boat. Got stung a little getting back on the boat but they were moon jellys which dont sting that bad so a little vinegar and I was all set.
