Diving in WPB this morning---lots of dark beady eyes staring out from the reef+
...and I mean LOTS! I did a 2-tanker aboard the Narcosis this a.m. and we had great conditions. Flat seas, 60 - 80 ft. vis, and 82 degree water,,,,ahhh!. Plus...the rain held off until just after we returned to the marina.
I'm usually gung-ho about mini-season way in advance, but I haven't thought about it too much this year as I've been preparing for my big trip. In fact, my objective for the dives this morning was to practice shooting wide-angle reef scenes using dual strobes. BUT....when I started to see lobster after lobster after lobster....well! The lobster fever has returned and the fever is high!
There was a last-minute cancellation on the Narcosis, so I'm in for Wednesday a.m. :-) The words 'get a lobster license' have now been added to the top of my 'to do' list for tomorrow.
In addition to seeing a ba-zillion lobster, we saw at least three turtles, two huge green morays, and school of about 10 honkin'-sized barracuda, among many other schooling varieties. I also saw a type angelfsih I never saw before and so did the dive guide who later told me it's now a regular inhabitant of the reef. She said it's a 'Korean Bar Angelfish', It's a,,,,er,,,'Pacific fish' that got transplanted into FL waters, like a few other Pacific species that we know about. The angelfish had bars of blue, yellow, and I think gray. I can't seem to get much info on it, but I'll post some pics when I get my slides back.
All in all it was a great morning. I hope that the local supermarkets are stocking up on butter and lemon because something tells me that sales are going to be brisk this week. :-) R
