Go West!

I don't take very many vacations, but I just got back from a good one. I used a couple of frequent flier tickets to jet the wife and me to Ft. Lauderdale and then rented a car for a weekend in Key West. I finally got to scuba dive on coral reefs and see lots of fish and sharks up close and personal. We also did lots of turisty things. Unfortunately, I'm now back home looking at a long short work week with a pile of work I left behind.

Here are a few of the hundreds of pictures I snapped while diving. Not all that great, but they give you an idea.

This nurse shark was just chilling out under the reef.

This is pretty typical; lots of fish sheltering under the reef trying not to become a meal for a bigger fish.

I was just minding my own business when I looked up to see a 6 foot long shark swimming straight at me. It took one whiff and swam on by.

Cool pictures. Glad you guys got away. Your wife needed a break (you probably did too).

I would have had an accident in my swimming trunks/wetsuit/whatever you wear while underwater.

Sounds like a fantastic getaway!
