It’s been a while since I’ve posted any pics. I’m still struggling to find a way to post private photo’s in wordpress so I’ve been holding off. I expected it would be easy to somehow set photos to ‘private’ but I can’t figure out how. My geek confidence is plummeting.
Anyway, I want to post some diving photos so I’m just going to omit any photo’s of people (at least where they can be identified) – so I don’t have to worry about keeping photo’s private.
Last weekend I went out diving with several friends. Janet tagged along on the boat but she didn’t come in the water. We took a little refresher lesson first. This was my first dive since Malapascua over a year ago – I didn’t really think I needed a refresher, but most everyone else was doing it, so I decided it couldn’t hurt if I did it too.
Our dive operator was Scuba Safaris located at Oualie Beach on Nevis, just down the hill from us. They brought us out to 2 dive sites just off St. Kitts – the first was the MV Christena wreck. The Christena was a passenger ferry that ran between St. Kitts and Nevis. It sunk in 1970 and 240 people died. It’s still a painful memory for many people here. The wreck is mostly intact and it has become a small artificial reef, with many small reef fish. The second site was called Green Point. It’s a shallow reef close to the St. Kitts shore, again with many small reef fish and good light (so better photo’s).
