Aside from boating (because we do that now), we've been snorkeling and practicing our underwater photography. One "waterproof" video camera destroyed, and one to go!
Mama! Do you see any baby fish?
Let's find out!
A guilded pipefish...
...close cousin of the sea horse!
A staghorn damsel fish
Coming up for air!
Here fishy, fishy, fishy...
A fan worm / feather duster
Until next time lagoon!

It was Eric's birthday this week, and we got a surprise in the mail to celebrate! Eric's mom and Rich sent us an inflatable boat. Like a really nice one with ores, and fishing pole holders, and seats, and everything. We got it all inflated and took it out for a spin on the lagoon this afternoon. So awesome!
Eric is on a boat!
Naps are better on a boat.
Fun sunglasses are funnier on boat, too.
The S.S. Mariner 4!
After all that boating, one needs a swim.
Thank you so much to Cathy and Rich, we love the boat!!

One of the most interesting parts of living on a flat coral atoll is that the weather blows straight in off the ocean with nothing to mitigate it. It is usually big, interesting, and gone as fast as it came. Today we watched this storm blow across the lagoon.
That appears to be a wall of rain.
It is moving fast...
While the weather is bad outside, what should we do? Cook!! We want broc!!
