    Carol and I just returned from a fabulous two week vacation to Palau and Yap -- a week on the luxury liveaboard Ocean Hunter III (www.oceanhunter.com) in Palau and then a week at Manta Ray Bay and Yap Divers (www.mantaray.com) in Yap. My business sponsored the trip so our group of 16 friends had the whole liveaboard to ourselves and two of our own boats in Yap. Truly a trip of a lifetime. Here are a few photos:

    Thanks, Dan. I was thinking about West Palm this weekend but it looks like the winds and seas are picking up. Maybe next weekend. Hope to see you and Valerie then!

    Jim & Matt -- thanks for the kind words!
