Scuba Steve

Unfortunately I only had the rental camera on two dives of the many over the past two weeks so I was unable to get pictures of many of the critters including octopus, blue spotted stingray, reef crabs the size of basketballs, unicorn fish, titan triggers, scorpion fish, remora eels, moray eels, and jellyfish on the order of size of a sofa couch.  Like the varieties of fish, the dives themselves were all different and all really neat, such as wreck dives, deep dives, and even better... night dives.  Nothing ensures your intestinal fortitude like diving into pitch black water in the midst of night with only the Milky Way shinning light down on you in the Gulf of Thailand.  No need for a flashlight here... in the undersea darkness your movements set off the bio-luminescent phytoplankton that appear like massive LSD induced neon trails following you through the darkness... very cool stuff.  No pics unfortunately.
