Back into the deep blue…….

Got to sleep in a little bit this morning…. a nice slow easy peaceful start to the day which included a nice big breakfast. By noon – I had the truck loaded, including a cooler of ice cold beer and I headed out for mid-island to catch up to my favorite dive boat and crew. It seemed like forever since I had been on the boat and because I was meeting up with Shawn and his Daughter Kaydence, it made it even more special. Also had one of the new Dive Masters that I have been taking pictures of – and it was good to see him as well. Two deep leisurely dives which gave me ample time to play with my camera. Jeez do I have a bunch yet to learn about it – but learn a bunch about it I did…… white balance is going to be a challenge, but I think I got at least a better handle on it now than I did before the two dives this morning. I did manage a couple of shots I am very happy with…. and knowing the capability of this camera now – I eagerly await every opportunity to dive now to improve on my skills. My new light set up should help immensely when I get it. I had two wonderful encounters on my dives today…. a massive Hawksbill turtle who I initially thought was going to try and bite me – turned out she was just really friendly and wanted her picture taken…. which I happily obliged. Sadly, I didn’t have the white balance set correctly, so the color in the pictures leaves a lot to be desired — but I did manage some decent shots and learned a lot from the photo’s. Second dive – I got to do the same thing with my most very favorite critter – a giant green Moray eel….. Again, I loused the white balance up – but learned a lot and got to interact with him/her for a while~!

Gonna wrap it up here as it is already much later than I would like – so I’m gonna get some pix from today put up for you. I am going to try and get my lap top into the shop for some PM work… so I might be off line for 1-? days waiting¬† for the work to be done. Don’t give up on me….. I’ll get back as soon as I can………!!!

Good Night Ya’ll – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –¬† Thankx for stopping in~!

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
