Here I am apparently pretty deep. Pretty good considering I can'tswim! As my snorkeling instructor put it "the hard partabout swimming is keeping your head above water". I lovebeing underwater, moving freely in 3D. (Jan 1999)

Most of the fish pictures weren't very good (like this one) but'cause it's my favorite fish I had to include it. (Jan 1999)

Here's a sea turtlesurfacing from deep water and going back down. It's shell ismaybe 4 feet across. The first time I saw a sea turtle it wascoming up from very deep water straight at me. I had to move toget out of its way! (Aug 1998)
