St. John, USVI, Vacation - 2008

I think this is a record for how soon I have gotten pictures edited and up on the web. I'm still having trouble getting the Meta Data to translate onto the web page automatically, but I'll work on that.

These pictures are from vacation with the Sandlers (Jack, Stacey, Lizzie, and Ally), Tricia, and my wife.

We stayed at the Westin St. John. The island is great and I cannot wait to go back.

Tricia completed her Open Water certificaiton and Jack and I did our Advanced Open Water certificaiton.

I took my new camera on three two-tank dives. The first set was to Dog Island and "Straggler" reef. The third set is from Mingo Cay - Hard Rock Cafe and Dever's Canyon. The highlight of the trip was a dive on the Rhone. A 1860's mail packet, she sank after running into black rock on Salt Island and her boilers exploded. For a wreck over 100 years old, it is in incredible shape. I wouldn't mind doing it again.

I have a couple videos, but I'm going to have to figure out how to compress them a little better, they are 20-40 meg.
