My wife and I are in Ambergris Caye to dive for 7 days. Internet is terrible here but I wanted to try and post a few pictures each day.

This one is my favorite I've taken diving so far. Two yellow head wrasse that are not playing nice!

Now you tell me! LOL did take a trip to the Blue Hole and got to dive Lighthouse Reef while we were there. A "friendly" green moray gave my wife a scare but he was just looking for a lionfish handout. She actually kicked him twice with her fin to get him to leave.

Just got back today due to a Belizean air traffic controller strike! Here's a short video shot at Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark/Ray Ally.

This is from Lighthouse Reef, near the Blue Hole. The moray in the first of the video is the one that got after my wife a little later. Just a baby. Those two groupers followed us the whole dive....why not?
