Wall of Fish

I like to snorkel, but occasionally it can be weird and otherworldly. One time Richard, Russell and I were snorkeling off the coast in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico when we suddenly realized that we were swimming right next to a massive, solid wall of fish that stretched in each direction as far as we could see, with a barracuda right in the middle of the pack. It was startling and freaky to see so many fish tightly packed together, moving past like a big wall. This video reminded me of that experience.

Countdown To Freeport

We are less than a month away from a much-anticipated visit with our old (in the sense of long-time, of course) friends Chuck and Laura Pisciotta at their excellent vacation getaway home on the outskirts of Freeport, on Grand Bahama Island. While there we will sleep in, drink Kalik beer, have great conversations on their deck, and luxuriate in the sun — weather permitting. Russell, we will try to say hello to Mr. Sun on your behalf!

I have attached a link to some video of Deadman’s Cove, where we snorkeled during our last visit. We saw all kinds of fish and other aquatic life, including watching a flock of rays glide majestically past as we floated in the warm, tropical water. I can almost taste the fried lobster now . . . .
