Here’s Jim and me on my birthday.
Lobby of the Occidental Grand Cozumel
The dive operation – right on the resort’s property – is Dive Palancar. They were great – always happy, always helping. The dive sites were very close – one of the benefits of staying at the resort instead of in the town of San Miguel which is a 45 minute boat ride to most dive sites.
We loved every single dive. We’ve been to Cozumel before and just the words Santa Rosa Wall, or Palancar Gardens, makes us happy with memories of beautiful coral formations big enough to swim thru. Jim bought an underwater video camera just before the trip … a tiny GoPro Hero, and he had lots of fun taking hours of video. Here’s just one little clip that we’ve uploaded to Youtube:

Oh, I can’t just pick a few pictures – you’ve got to see them all! Here’s a slideshow. Even better than below, click on this Cozumel Pictures link and then click the Slideshow button and you’ll view them fullscreen.
It was a wonderful, wonderful week. We’ll post more of the videos in the weeks to come. I even got to scratch an item off my bucket list … seeing a seahorse! In 30 years of diving, I had never seen one – till this trip. We even got video. Stay tuned.
Better yet, come to our TechnoGeek Learning Rally and we’ll spend a week together teaching you about using your camera, Picasa, smartphones, and other RVing and technology related stuff. That’s the TechnoGeek Learning Rally in Bushnell, Florida December 2-8. Come join us – but sign up soon, there’s just a few spaces left.
