Lobster Bay

Snorkeling in Lobster bay. 3mm shorty and the 3mm long suit. Also, very important, a hood. Not quite enough lead. Water was about 15 degrees, but very clear. Several dives to 10 meters. One full hour in the water, cold towards then end.

Snorkeling in Lobster Bay

First time snorkeling this year. 15 degree cold water. The 3mm suit was ok, but I really should have brought a hood. Instead I placed my upper body on the buoy, to keep my head out of the water as much as possible. Stayed in the water for almost an hour. Very clear, sunny, some large algae. There were several large puffer fish, and many box fish. At times, I could see up to a dozen, including juveniles. The Olympus 5050 is a bit slow in taking (repeated) pictures, and really only suitable for scuba.
