Fab Photos Friday: Diving in Myanmar

In 2014 I headed solo to dive the Mergui Archipelago, part of which is in Myanmar. For more on that adventure, check me out on Scubaverse at http://www.scubaverse.com/diving-the-mergui-archipelago/. In some ways the trip was disappointing, but wherever one dives, there is always discovery and the thrill of excitement. Here are some of the creatures I ran into!
