Under The Sea

 We enjoyed some great snorkeling in the British and Spanish Virgin Islands. One of our favorite places was Culebra in the Spanish Virgins. I got a new underwater camera for my birthday and I had so much fun taking pictures of the beautiful underwater world. I highly recommend my new camera, the Canon D10, and now (of course) there is an even newer version. I REALLY love the looks and features of the new one. Isn’t that the way it always works? You buy an electronic device and practically the next day they come out with a better one? Anyway, in case anybody needs ideas for a Christmas gift (hint, hint), take a look at the Canon D20!

I didn't get much blogging done while we were sailing this winter/spring. I guess we were having too much fun, plus, I use the age old excuse of poor internet. Hopefully we have been able to make progress with the internet issue by our purchase of the The WirieAP. We have only used it here in Luperon so far, but we can't wait to get out there after hurricane season and check it out in other harbors. It sure is nice to have internet on the boat instead of lugging the computer to a local restaurant/bar and trying to get everything accomplished before drinking too much beer! Hopefully the Wirie will help me keep the blog more current.

There were so many pictures that it was really hard to edit them down. I will post them to the blog using my Flickr account. So click on ******* this link ******** and enjoy a slide show of some of the beautiful sea life that we saw in the Virgin Islands.

By the way, we just added our blog to the Sailing Blogs website where you will find many similar blogs as well as all kinds of blogs about boat building, racing and well, just about anything to do with sailing.  Click on the icon at the right and give us a "boost" or a comment!

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), it's always our self we find in the sea.
