St. Thomas USVI or Bust: 2013! – Day 5: Dive! Dive!

Went scuba diving today, which is always awesome, but the water at 30 feet was like mud. Curse you wind and tides! Still, managed to see, chase, and/or tickle a seat turtle, eel, various strange fish and crabs, and the biggest spiny rock lobster I’ve ever seen. In honor of it not snapping off my fingers while I played with its antenna, it gets the distinguished denizen of the day award: Caribbean lobster. Had a great sunset swim while watching bats swoop across the water to pick off mosquitoes. Number tally: 3 bottles of sunblock. 2 novels.
