The Shot of a Lifetime!

Wow...this weekend we did a simple, shallow dive at Piti Channel. Our dive group consisted of Ken Pierson, Martin Klein, Eric Fly and I. The four of us were just trying to find a peaceful place to dive but were pleasently surprised. Actually, it was probably one of the best photo dives I have had on Guam. We started out by diving through 5 concrete tunnels, then I caught an octopus and took some pictures (A first for me), then we found a nice Mantis Shrimp; and to top it off, we found a rare leaf fish, and I got the picture of a lifetime. First off all I was excited just to see the thing in Guam. Then I happened to put my camera on full manual (No Shutter Lag), then I just happened to be focus and ready when he made a strange feeding protrussion with his mouth...Snap! I got the shot!!! Now maybe many of you don't appreciate the moment like I do; but it's always nice to have exciting moments that puts a smile on our face. There were a few more pictures from the dive on my Scubaboard Underwater Gallery if you want ot see more.

While the guys were diving and relaxing the girls participated in a SDA Womens Retreat. They had really good speakers, pleasant company and seemed to enjoy the whole weekend. Unfortunately the fun is over and now we must return to another week of work! Talk to you again soon!
