Tuesday Monday

It’s Monday, but really it’s Tuesday.

Yesterday was the best day of the weekend. We went to the beach and snorkeling.[jwplayer config=”Player-320-480″ mediaid=”9659″]

Above is a photo and a super short (3 seconds) video of a triggerfish that hid as soon as I saw him.

And that’s about it. Also, last month, when The Wife went to Costa Rica, she brought me back a coffee cup gift from our cousins. It’s pretty¬† fancy, with the saucer and the spoon and everything…

markoffeeYodito means super strong coffee, and has something to do with iodine.

I have been working at the Airport for 6 months now. That means my probation is over. I have to get an evaluation to make it official. Today..

Four pics and two vids

Baby Squid. as big as my thumb, hovering in mid water, I wasn’t sure I’d get good focus.

I call this piece of coral The Pinnacle. I have been swimming out to check it out as long as I have lived here.

These are artificial reef balls. Shaped like a gumdrop. Not much seems to be growing on them though.

Wordless Wednesday

jan-23-2013-000jan-23-2013-001For those of you who don’t know, when you don’t have anything to say, and it’s Wednesday, it’s legal to do a post called Wordless Wednesday, not to be confused with Silent Saturday. So since I have nothing to post about today, I’m just posting these pictures and I’m not saying a word.

Above and below are my attempts and over/under shots. You try to get the waterline exactly in the middle of the lens so that you can see both above and below the water. Dismal attempts.

Shortest Day

Today is the first day of winter, sounds ominous, but really it’s the day the days start getting longer again. I’m glad for this. It’s hard to wake up when it’s still dark..

What do you think of all the doomsday people, saying the Mayan Calendar predicts the end of the world today? I think it’s the same as going up into an abandoned house, seeing an old calendar on the wall, and saying “The people who lived here thought the world was going to end on Dec 31, 1998!:

Below are some underwater pictures from my lunchtime snorkeling this week.

Hope your world doesn’t end this weekend and that you have a good one!

No More Slideshows

I noticed on my old posts with slideshows the photos have been disappearing. So I have to look into that. Also on the old old imported posts, like over three years old, the comments aren’t there on the page, but do appear on my control panel.

That is not what I planned on posting about today….

Above are some pictures I took during my lunchtime snorkeling the past couple of weeks..
