Silver Sides

My weekend was very enjoyable, we got some good weather during the day but also some nice and heavy showers for the plants, so we are all happy!

Yesterday we went to see my brother and sister in law and did 2 boat dives on the North Side Wall with the company they work for, they took us to some amazing dive spots.

First one was Babylon (named after the hanging gardens of Babylon because of the coral formations that literary hang from this huge coral pinnacle), unfortunately my camera was not cooperating with me so the pictures came out quite blue, here is my favorite and possible best one of that site.

Now, on the second dive site, we visited a place called Dragon's Lair, and we had one of the most unbelievable underwater encounters, but this time it wasn't with a big fish, but many, many tiny ones.

Here's a video I took of the Silver Sides on that dive.

Isn't it amazing??? while you are going through them, at times it's a very thick "cloud" and you can barely see the person right in front of your, in fact during the whole video my brother was leading the dive but I can't see him most of the time... Here's a picture of what it looks like.

It was an amazing sight and a one of a kind experience, I really enjoyed the dives and spending time with my brothers, now I am fully energized and ready to take on another work week.

Hope your weekend was also nice, have a wonderful week!

What an awesome day! I wish that I could dive, but after a few tries, years ago, I gave up. I am just too claustrophobic. Now I just enjoy seeing the view through others' eyes. Thanks for sharing. :)
