Bonus Day

What do you get when you wake up to no wind and there is a sailboat regatta scheduled? You get a race postponement and a bonus day on, in, and under the water! Don't you love my outfit? It was only 9 A.M. with a chill still in the air, so I dressed appropriately for anything that could happen...swimsuit, wetsuit, rashguard, shorts, and sweatshirt!

The ocean and Fowl Cay Reef were calling us and I bet you know what that means. That's right, more fish pictures! Here are just a few. As always, you can click on the pictures to enlarge them for details.

Small Trumpetfish. A huge school of Doctorfish.
A Bermuda Chub, who seemed to like me so much he kept swimming up to my mask.
This sea fan was the biggest we have ever seen.
This green Parrotfish really blended in with the coral that he munches on with his hard 'beak'. Did you know that sand is actually Parrotfish poop?
Beautiful brain coral.
This 4 foot mean looking Barracuda followed us around 'HIS' reef. I learned back in the Florida Keys, where there are tons of them, that if you feel threatened by them, just swim right at them and it scares them (well, a bit anyway) and they keep their distance.
Last, but certainly not least, here is a crazy upside down Husbandfish!
