I have a few dive pals who take exquisite macro photos…one of them, Diana Paboojian, was featured on this blog as one of my Wednesday’s Amazing Women. I finally went out and bought a macro lens, and while I cannot […]

Diving Cozumel: Casa Blanca?

When the dive guide told me we were headed to “Casa Blanca” to dive today, I said, Huh? Look in any dive guide book and you will see that no such dive site exists. In front of the reef El Paso de Cedral (Cedar Pass) is a large white house named Casa Gordon, and that is the […]

Randy is in Cozumel!

Fearing to jinx it, I haven’t said anything about our trip to Cozumel this summer. It has been two years…and Randy is finally back in our ocean home! Seeing him snorkel has been so wonderful…there have been times during the last 22 months that I’ve wondered if I would ever see him snorkel or dive […]
