  1. Explanation: I had written about the 14days record in Ponza, of 6 divers living for 2 weeks underwater, but the link for some pictures is wrong.

  2. Beautiful invertebrates!

    And so close to home (for me at least), right here in the Gulf of Mexico. I regret that I’m only familiar with the local invertebrate “jetty trash”.
