Good morning friends, did you have a nice weekend out there?? Sorry about the no blog on Friday but I was swamped with diving and working on a multitude of tasks including photographing this new echinoid you see above. My weekend was like always, busy and fun and honestly I did so much I can hardly recall it all now! To top my weekend off I did a fun photo-shoot with our little supermodel Emma at Playa Kanoa last night. We took a surfboard and did all kinds of fun surfing type photos and other than the crazy wind everything was perfect. Our new find above was discovered at around 850 feet right here in front of the Substation

Good morning friends, how was your weekend??? I know a bunch of you out there are locked in freezing temps and snow so it would be mean of me to tell you how sunny and beautiful it is here so I won’t even go there! I spent a good part of Saturday getting our car ready for it’s annual inspection which it did not pass last year! Each year here in Curacao you have to take your car to a government run inspection agency and pray your car passes. We just spent the last few months having rust holes repaired, putting new shocks on and doing tons of motor stuff like a new radiator and getting a tune up, so it should pass, it’s there now so cross your fingers!

Smooth Trunkfish Feeding on Christmas Tree worms

Hello friends, how was your weekend??? First off before anything else, a few days ago, sometime last week I posted a blog on a little cactus coral and found out this weekend through a coral expert that is is not a cactus coral but is in fact a juvenile boulder brain coral instead or Colpophyllia natans, here is the link to the updated post, http://www.coralreefphotos.com/ridged-cactus-coral-mycetophyllia-lamarckiana-2/ I try my best to identify reef corals and creatures the best I can but often one thing looks like another especially in their juvenile forms so feel free to send me revisions on anything you ever see wrong. My weekend was again just a blur and as I told you in my last blog we all had to work Saturday because of folks wanting to go down in the submersible. Saturday evening and Sunday I spent a few hours on my new mountain bike trail but it’s so hot out there this time of year that the dogs and myself could only take so much so work is slow! I did get a two hour ride in Sunday morning and fought crazy wind the whole way, talk about depressing!
