This past week I spent some time under the sea.  Just 10 minutes away from Tobacco Caye is an amazing diving spot called Cuda Point.  Once I was over my initial nervousness of diving again after over two years, I had a great time.   We saw Tarpon, pictured here, from just five feet away.  This one doesn’t look so scary, however, they range from five to eight feet in length and have a mean look on their faces.  There were also a wide range of soft and hard corals with brilliant blue, purple and yellow shades.  The best part about diving is the subtle clicking sound of coral reefs, it’s calming and a bit spooky.  I can’t wait for the next diving opportunity, if only the ocean in Monterey wasn’t so cold!
