If you read my last cleverly titled blog you have probably been wondering if I actually had the guts to go in the ocean again. Well, not really, but with a little coercing three of our good friends took us for our first real dive. Lucky for you, they both have underwater cameras so we can share the shots with you!
Here's a fun fact for you- Bottom Time is the amount of minutes spent underwater. We have logged just over 200 minutes. :)
Thanks Mariko, Madison, and Kristle!! :)

|Always stick with your buddy!|

|Can you find the stonefish?|
Stonefish are one of the common dangers of tropical waters. They blend in well with the coral and are hard to spot. The spines on their back are venomous and can cause immediate shock and even death! Luckily, they are not aggressive. As long as you wear proper footwear and don't bug them, they are fun to observe.

|Many people know the Clownfish as Nemo. They live in special sea anemone and are very protective. One of them bit Kristle's finger. She says it didn't hurt!|
|Find the fishy... my new favorite. They are dainty and fun.|
|We always refer to the trumpetfish as the Troy fish. It is tall and skinny like him! This is such a cool picture of him getting up close and personal with one.|
|"Larry" the batfish and his buddies hung out with us for a while. Right after this picture, he bit my finger. It felt like a cat's tongue. Too cool. :)|
