We have been without the internet for a couple days, as the Divi had some problems with the router that supplied the end of the complex where we are staying… So I’ve just got a few brief things to show. Here’s hoping the connection will last long enough to get this post up.
We have noticed a distinct lack of barracuda on this trip. I think we’ve only seen a couple, which is most unusual. However, on Curacao we saw many, many barracuda being butchered on various beaches. Who knows if they are being over fished? Today we saw a couple and one was quite a monster. We also saw TWO ocean triggerfish today, which was quite special. Unfortunately, they were out near the dropoff and my movie is awfully shaky, so I didn’t include the clip.
But I have compiled a brief movie of some other highlights of the last couple days. The permit fish is a really cool fish, very graceful in the water. It’s hard to take your camera off of them. And the barracuda with the divers – that was fun diving down to get that shot.
