Thanks Els and Dario; And thank you "Diver Denise" for all your encouraging comments. I will keep a lookout for you when I am down under next time. Are you diving much these days? regards Derek

I'm too wimpy to dive in the cold waters of Monterey :( so we're planning to go to Fiji for Christmas. :)

Thank you so much for braving the cold water of BC and sharing this magnificent underwater world! Do you use a wet suit or A dry suit?

And hooray for Panoramino for finally recognizing off shore mapping!

I recall diving in Monterey about 18 years ago and was startled by a huge Sun Fish. The water was quite warm. :-) Here it is another story. Yes, a dry suit with multiple layers underneath. I look forward to populating Google earth's ocean layer in BC.
