Stormy Weather

Yesterday was gorgeous, but last night, the wind and rain picked up, and it hasn't stopped since. The weather these past few has been somewhat inconsistent, presumably because the rainy season is just around the corner. However, underwater, it's always good. There's no runoff here to spoil the visibility. :)

There are many, many neat critters here to photograph. I'm having a great time with them. :) The staff here timed a delicious outdoor feast with my birthday a couple of days ago, and brought out a birthday cake at dinner's end. Birthdays are getting less exciting these days, and being here without spectacle and gifts was just fine. :)

Thanks again to all of you who sent nice birthday wishes! :)
