    Halemano, cool pics and really nice to see a shark in Shark Cove! I really liked that dive when I did it in 2007.

    Yesterday I went to Tobermory and had a nice relaxing 47 min dive, 74 ft max, 50 degrees below the thermocline, 64 above. Man I love my doubles and new can light.

    Hey got in a solo dive yesterday and took a bunch of pics. I actually arrived with my buddy but he wanted to go searching for bottles so we dived seperately for the first dive, which was nice for a change. Anyway, we met back on shore and I had found heaps of cool critters and he found lots of old bottles + coins. :) Did two more dives with him after this for a total of 4hrs12mins underwater, so was a nice day of diving. Viz was about 12m too! And water has warmed up to 13C :)

    Sas, you take beautiful picures!

    I totally envy you right now for being able to see some of those animals. I've spent over 20 years as a fish hobbyist and would love to see a sea dragon like that. I once saw them offered for $20,000 each but now I believe they are not allowed to be sold at all (good thing).

    Thanks! :) What kind of critters do you get over your way?

    Wow, 20k... at some sites there are dozens and dozens of them! I am surprised if they sell for that much people haven't been stealing them.. I'm glad they haven't though! I am told they are very delicate and people who collect them for specimens have to bring them up in little deco nets *very* slowly so they don't get bent. They're protected from fishing locally. Anyway, I love to see them swim around, really interesting critters though really annoying to photograph as they will stick their tail at you most of the time :rofl3:
