WW = Wonderful Weekend

Friday: Dinner with about 20 friends. It was really fun. Saturday was a 800 meter sea swim.

Guessing about a hundred swimmers total.

Sunday morning I saw the moon set. Just like a sunset, except it was an (almost) full moon. I always wanted to see that my whole life and Sunday was the first time.

And i went diving Sunday as you probably guessed by the pictures. I have too many Flamingo Tongue pictures but I can’t stop taking pictures of them.

Monday, not looking too bad from here.

have a great week!

Frogfish

Below is a picture of a frog fish. The frog fish you can actually see. The question is, can you see the frogfish in the pictures pictures I took below that?

Red Warty Frogfish, Antennarius maculatus, Lembeh Strait, North Sulawesi, Indonesia, which MarkD60 stole from the internet.

Sunday I went diving and saw and took pictures of a frog fish. They were very difficult to see except when they moved. Unlike the picture above, mine look like they aee covered with dirt or growth. Below are my 3 pictures of a frog fish. On one, I can see the eye maybe.

A few weeks ago I took some other pictures of another frog fish and couldn’t see the fish in the picture. I didn’t delete them and I will go back and look today. If there are more than 3 pictures above, the latter ones were added from that previous dive.

Let me know if you can see the fish in these fish pictures!

Have a good day!

Watta Weekend (So Far)

On Friday I went diving early and was home before the internet man came and supposedly fixed my internet. Then I trimmed the hedges, and mowed the front yard. I went to town and picked up a dozen 18×18 pavers so that I could double the size of the backyard patio below the apartments back porch. I also did a lot of shopping, running around and errands. Saturday I went diving again, and the sea was rough when we got in, and super rough and pouring rain when we got out.

Then, Saturday afternoon, in the rain, I laid the pavers down in the backyard, what which isn’t easy because they all have to be leveled.

My body is sore from so much physical exercise and bending over, and my left calf is very sore because diving Friday I had a very bad cramp just before I got out of the water. I feel all beat up but good.

Friday we did a good deep dive at the main wall and and Saturday we stayed kinda shallow at the mini wall (Different dive sites) and today is too rough and weathery for diving period.

There was an 800 Meter Sea Swim scheduled, that was canceled Saturday. There was a Coral Fest exhibition for Sunday that was canceled because of covid. The sea swim was previously canceled because of covid, and was canceled yesterday because of the weather.

Below are pictures in 2 groups, Below is Friday’s dive.

And below is Saturday’s dive!

Today is Sunday, but it’s not sunny at all. It’s cold and windy. And on-and-off-again rainy.

I had a weirdish breakfast, my bagels were frozen, so I had a pretzel instead. ( If the salt and pepper is on the other side of the eggs,)

Eggs over easy with a pretzel.

And I’ll talk to you tomorrow!

Same shot, different day

The 2 pictures above were taken in the same place. The sunshiney one was taken in 2005 and the one on the left with the clouds, was taken last weekend.

Here is cloudy and rainy and supposed to be that way most of this week. There’s some kind of upper level inverted stationary trough wave pressure front overhead or something.

Have a great day!

Underwater Pics Tuesday

I had a really cool topic for today, one that I could never forget. I forgot it.

I went diving Saturday and Sunday last weekend and it was very nice.

Yesterday at work, I put in vacation requests for my 18.5 days that I have to use by the end of the year. Is pretty much, I’m taking every Friday off and almost every Monday off until 2022. I had to submit a separate leave request for each day.

Have a wonderful day!

Another Picturesque Monday

It’s another Monday with another batch of weekend pictures. It was a nice weekend lengthened by the addition of 3 days vacation time. I went to an old beach near where I used to live and walked up to the old Homestead as a new near as I dared.

I lived in the center unit when hurricane Michelle put a wave through the whole place. It’s about 50 feet from the sea.

I went to the annual Recovery Month Festival at Pedro Saint James.

panorama view.
Pedro St. James’s Hurricane Ivan memorial.
And I took a picture of a tiny, tiny flower, half the size of a pencil eraser.

And now I’m headed back to work, and for some odd reason, I’m actually looking forward to it.

Have a wonderful Week!

Monday Pictures

Overall, it was a nice weekend. Saturday was rainy and snoozy. I rested except for a little shopping. I bought some flowerpots and a new faucet for the bathroom sink.

Sunday morning I installed the faucet and re-potted some plants. Then I went for a long beach walk.

Went to town in the afternoon, pretty empty.

And lastly, a flower from last nights dawg walk.

Have A GREAT week!
