Fab Photo Friday: Let’s Dive Cozumel!

Diving in Cozumel is always a wonderful experience. For the most part it is relaxing (unless there is a very strong current), always colorful, and there are plenty of animals to look at, especially small macro animals. I was so excited to have my cousin diving with me on this trip as well. Now that Randy is not diving due to his double lung transplant 2 and 1/2 years ago, I am always looking for a buddy! We had a terrific time, come and see!

Not sure what the name is, but I think it is beautiful! These are jellies, siphonores, hydramedusas, or ctenophores.

  1. Learned to dive in Cozumel but never got your great shots. The Toad fish is hardest. Glad you found a dive buddy.
