A few of my friends recently got dive certified, so we took the opportunity to go enjoy their new certified status together underwater. I haven’t been diving in too long! It was really great to get back underwater and swim with the fish.

Heading down to the first site – a ship wreck that I’ve visited before, called the Sea Emporer (~65 ft depth)
So I photographed as much as possible…
until she’d had enough. This is ironically my favorite shot.
She came back a few moments later and did a fly by
Other non-stingrays… this one is a sponge.

Pieces of the wreck, which was completely encrusted in life!

dive 2 was on a reef, called white house ledges. lots of giant barrel sponges.

Hope everyone had a nice memorial day weekend!!!
