Another great dive

We went kayak diving again on Sunday ... that's my kind of church. Another gorgeous day, but a little choppy this time. Got a good workout paddling back in over 4 foot waves against the wind. We were down for 1 hour and 25 minutes! I think that's a record for us. I really like diving in shallow water. When you dive deep, (50-100ft) you're very limited in how much time you can stay down (25-45 minutes). When you dive 20-30feet like we do from our kayaks, you can stay down as long as your air holds out. The water temperature was a perfect 82 degrees. I was in heaven, just floating along, no current, taking in all the sights, or just meditating. We didn't take any cameras with us, so this time I'll tell you about what we saw when we were underwater. Lots of standard reef fish, parrots, grunts, sargeant majors, puffers, jacks, groupers, spotted drums and french angels. Fort Lauderdale's reef system may be 'dead' but there sure is a lot of life on them. We saw quite a few of what I would call 'special' creatures too ... I've gathered some photos to show you these ...

You're making me miss diving!! Get it in why you can kids, because you won't see these beautiful critters in AZ. Andy checks Ft Laud's webcam almost daily to get his ocean-fix...but it's not the same! ha!
