Just for one or two seconds, think of me while you are soaking up the underwater beauty. K?
I miss diving.
I'll take good care of B. While you are gone.
Have a great and recharging trip.

How long have you been diving? I'm thinking of taking my rescue diver class next time it's offered through my dept. The only problem is I like the station I'm at and if they need someone at the dive station that may get me moved. I'm still up in the air about it.
I got certified in 1970 when I was just a lass. Been diving pretty regularly since (except when I was living in the mountains of Colorado...I DON'T do cold water, ever).

Rescue/search recovery diving is not that much fun, but better than sitting behind a desk, I guess. The first time I found a body by touch was too creepy to believe. But, that's another story. Your wife works in LE in NC? Anywhere near my location? Sounds like time for a meet-up as we have lots more in common than just horses!

BTW, where does the name "roller" come from? Never heard that one.

Super jealous! Hope you have a great time, enjoy yourself! Look forward to seeing pics, lots and lots of pics. :)

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

I have an agenda in Lembeh, of a sort. I really want to get some shots of a hairy octopus, which is as yet an undescribed species. There is almost nothing known about it and it is rarely seen. When you view the video below, you will understand why. Hidden in plain sight!



Named a species after HF? Hmmm.....this octo has no name, yet. Maybe octopus horseforumi. I really hope I get to see one as it is the holy grail for photographers, right now. The way these mandarin fish were 15 years ago...



Sorry, this photo hasn't been worked on and it is a bit messy.

That octopus is really cool! Will cross my fingers that you get to photograph one.

I see why that little bugger is easy to miss, looks like just another piece of vegetation floating in the water.

I learned to dive in the USN and haven't dived since I got out due to other interests taking over (like horses). All of my dive experience was up in Puget Sound, did some snorkeling in various ports of call but never dove them as taking the dive equipment along was to big of a pain. Someday I would like to get back into diving as it's one heck of an experience.
