Went diving on Friday. Hot of course, and a longer boat ride, but much less crowded than Kubbar. Well the dive buddy had a camera and was snapping away lots. So here they are. It was quite nice diving, good visibility and the third dive was a drift dive (though no current). That was probably the best dive ever in Kuwait. We even saw a couple of fish getting cleaned by some smaller cleaner fish. That is cool, to see a fish cleaning station.

A drift dive is where you head out with the current if there is any and then at the end of the dive, from below the water you inflate a surface marker which you have on a line and send it to the surface so the boat or other boats see where you are and don’t run you over and your boat will come get you. That is why in the photos I am carrying Inspector Gadget stuff on my waist, spools for the marker buoy.

Here I am looking cool. There was no flash used and as the water absorbs red that is why it is so blue.

Go to the next page to see more photos. But I’m warning you, it is hard to always look cook with a regulator in your mouth and a SCUBA mask on.

The rest were taken with the flash on or in very shallow water.

The next two, I was in the mood to cut some of the many lengths of fishing line left across the coral.

The left wrist has a compass and the right wrist has a dive computer. I had to borrow one as mine was recalled by the factory for a software bug. I should have it back in a couple of weeks.

OK, here it is. I warned you, not pretty, looking at the camera through the mask and looking cool.
