Here’s my interpretation for this week’s challenge: A shot of a Tarpon late in the afternoon while diving on the Lighthouse Reef Atoll in Belize.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Dreamy

Half Moon Caye

Half Moon Caye

During our recent scuba adventure aboard the Sun Dancer II, we stopped for a short land excursion to Half Moon Caye. During our morning visit to the island, we saw iguanas, red-footed boobies and a lovely stretch of white sandy beach. We enjoyed seven wonderful days of diving on the Lighthouse Reef Atoll – about 50 miles east of the mainland of Belize and Half Moon Caye rests on the southeast side of the atoll. Here’s my dreamy shot of the beach, palm trees and Peter gazing out to sea while the Sun Dancer II patiently awaits our return.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Signs

Welcome to St. Charles

Welcome to St. Charles

On our road trip from Atlanta to Fort Collins in August, my sister Becky and I stopped in St. Louis for some sightseeing. Here’s a shot of a lamp post with sign in historic St. Charles, Missouri – site of the state’s first capital. We had a great day exploring shops and galleries on Main Street – a brick covered street lined with late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth century buildings right alongside the Missouri river. St. Charles is also the site where Lewis and Clark left on their grand expedition.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Nighttime

Sleeping on the Reef

Sleeping on the Reef

Another shot from Belize, here’s a sleeping Hawksbill Turtle that we found lying on the sand under a large shelf in the reef. It wasn’t exactly nighttime, but was getting dark around 5:30 in the evening. This lovely creature let me get very close to it and take several portraits. They can hold their breath for long periods of time underwater and it seemed quite content catching a snooze!

Hi Everyone,

I’ve been absent from the Blogosphere for a couple of weeks while living aboard the Sundancer II and cruising the outer atolls of Belize. After 32 amazing dives with our fabulous crew and fellow divers, I came home with lots of pics to share. I thought I would entice you with just one shot today of a gorgeous hawksbill turtle who happened to swim by. I look forward to catching up with your blogs and hope that your September has been a good one. More to come!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Adventure

Spotted Moray Eel

Spotted Moray Eel

If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you probably know about my scuba diving and underwater photography habit. You might also suspect that I’d pick an underwater shot for my interpretation of “Adventure.” Well, while I don’t alway behave in a predictable manner, this time I’m going with the obvious. Here’s a shot I took last December of a spotted moray eel in Bonaire. To me, it’s quite the adventure to be able to get up close and personal with these magnificent animals.
