Still playing with the video program
Okay, so I'm still playing around with the new video program. I dug up some older video of Dirk and I diving in the Cayman Islands. One of the reasons that we love the water is because we are divers and can do this along with the enjoyment of cruising. I can just picture us going along and just throwing out the anchor to do some underwater exploration. Some people have told us about the deck mounted or floating air compressors. As much as I would love to have one of the "super snorkels" have you seen the price of them? So I guess we will just go along and fill the tanks when ever we can. So anyway, this short video shows us mainly at the Turtle Farm on Grand Cayman. It is right off the Turtle Farm and so all the run off goes right into the ocean here. Its seems to be nutrient rich and thus it attracts much sea life. The last part of the clip is taken off the beach of our hotel. About 25 yards off the beach there is what they call the mini wall in about 45 feet of water. It drops off to about 65 feet. This in turn leads you to the big wall which drops off to 6000 feet. The entire Island is surrounded by this wall. The deepest we dove was about 130 feet. The water is so clear you don't realize just how deep you are. I learned to keep an eye on my dept meter.
