diver down

This morning we dove French Cay Bank, a reef dive with some wreck debris at the beginning. The highlighted sightings were two giant, elegant angelfish and a large, lazy nurse shark hanging out on the sandy bottom in the shallow reef. Unfortunately I acquired a debilitating headache halfway through the dive and missed the second dive because of it. I recovered by the afternoon to do a wall dive called Inside-Outside. The visibility still wasn’t quite up to par, but we spotted a toothy barracuda hiding in the vertical reef wall and a large group of cuttlefish flitting along. We have noticed a strong presence of the demon-looking lionfish at nearly every site so far, which is rather disconcerting. Apparently they are good eating, but Noel and I have not figured out a way to kill one without getting stung ourselves. Today we got skunked on turtle sightings, crossing our fingers for better luck tomorrow.
