Thanks for letting me know about the webinar. I may just have to do that. Maybe I wont let my work get in the way of a little fun online. :-)

Is there an actual dive operator in Mexico Beach? I´m going to be in and out of Mexico Beach this summer - my husband is setting up our little camper down there - and I thought I might like to try some dives there.

Thanks again, Carol..I just left the web site.. I will be joining tonight. You were right the reviews are great.

Thanks Carol...I have looked at Amoray and a few others....seems no one really has a recommendation that they are willing to pass on...I guess I will just close my eyes and point to a place and see how it goes...thanks for the response.

Hi. I just saw your post. I´ve dove with Florida Keys Dive Center twice on trips to the keys. They are located in Islamorada. I just got back from a short trip down there and dove with Key Dives. Both are fine. The Key Dives place sets up your gear and takes care of it for you, whereas with FKDC you do it yourself. There is, however, a place at FKDC to store your gear for the next day´s dives. As I compare the two dive operators, I found that FKDC took us to better reefs than Key Dives.

Bob, I´m so glad I can count on you for some positive encouragement. I´m doing the amazing editing of the pics right now because the Gulf of Mexico is about 56F---too cold for my tastes. I am looking forward to a trip to Saba and St. Kitts at the end of March. Hopefully I´ll get some good photos there.

Carol Cox: I was photographing mahi when something suddenly raced towards me. A sailfish materialized, its bill bearing down on my chest as it pursued a mahi. The mahi escaped over my shoulder and the sailfish turned missing me by inches, but I got the photo!
