I thought it might be interesting to find out what others like to do with their free time while on their boat and ashore while out cruising.
Of course we like doing the relaxed reading, and going for hikes on the many islands, gourging on crab and shrimp and the like.*
But one of my passions (surprise - carvenDIVE) is that I like Scuba diving and U/W photography.* The San Juans and especially BC have some SPECTACULAR critters under those waves.
I've included a few of my favorites.* I like macro photography -- the small subjects.* The seaslug was "grazing" on some vegitation that was growing on the top of my rudder - that close to me - who'd have guessed it.
Now that I have the bigger boat I'd like to start doing more diving up north.* Neah Bay and Barkley sound have some of the best photo dives.* I just wish I had a closed circuit rebreather so that I didn't have to take along all those tanks
Edit:* Dang, I thought their names would show.* The first one is a Lions Main Jellyfish - DO NOT TOUCH this one if you find one.* The*second is Nudibranch*Eggs.** The third is JanolusFuscus (sea slug).* The forth is a pair of Decorated Warbonnets - one's hiding in the back of the den.*
