Diver above Gorgonian

Diver above Gorgonian

Good evening all, I thought this was a perfect photo for you tonight as it kind of goes with yesterdays shot.  This is what a Slit-Pore Sea Rod looks like, the photo yesterday was just a close-up of the top of one of the branches, pretty cool huh?  This was taken East of the Aquarium the morning we got dropped off a ways up the coast and did that fun dive all the way back.  You can see gorgonians do look a lot like bushes  and many are as big as a small trees that’s why we some times refer to a big area of these as an underwater forest. 
It was a very busy day at work today and next week is crazy busy, I thought this was our slow time??  Aimee and Emily were again with the whale all day.  I will get a photo that someone else took and have her write you and tell you everything that has been going on, it’s quite the story.  With our car down and the eye surgery I haven’t even been over there to see it yet, yeah I know crazy huh?
The girls are out walking dogs but will be home soon so I better wrap this up.  Hope your having a great weekend, Barry
