Our Casa Cielo for the Week

A travel blog entry by gilmer

... beautiful. With some properties you look at the pictures and
when you get there you find that the shots are carefully framed so as
not to show the dumpster or powerlines, etc. This place isn't like that
- it really is as pretty as the pictures show, but they don't really

What I actually had to do was go up a little bit and then go right. So close! I navigated easily to the shark channel though and found the clown shrimp area even though they weren't there ...

20-21: Dive Master Skills and Being Drowned

A travel blog entry by blondesontour


... so I was not happy. It later turned out the Julian had borrowed them, gone on a two hour lunch break and just not told me. Useless! I really wasn't up for the pool, I was so tired and apparently majorly sunburnt as I hadn't had time to reapply cream as we were so busy on the boat. But anyway we did some rescue diver skills including a 'release' from a panicked diver who is trying to grab a hold of you. I thought that Tom wanted us to get close so ...
