UnderWater Awesomeness....

Hi, Everyone... Our son, DAVID, takes his family to MEXICO each summer for some awesome 
 scuba diving, among many other things.

These underwater photos are so good, I wanted to share them with you.




THIS scary fella is a MORAY EEL...
and that's WAAAY too close for me.!!! ....but what a GREAT photo.


Grand, LACEY JEAN, 100 ft. under and in a wrecked ship....

just look at that....she is STILL beautiful in diving gear, 100 ft. down and in a ship...

AND NOW...
for this underwater, magical
PHOTO OF THE DAY



David says, "here I am, with my eyes closed, waiting for a kiss from my shelled friend....."

I'm pretty sure this one will be enlarged and hung in THE SUMMER HOUSE.

I am so impressed with these photos....but so much more impressed with
these loves of mine that are having such a great time in a world so different from the
one we are used to.

They tell me it's just amazing down there....
and being the sissy girl that I am, I will just enjoy their tales and their great photos.

Keep on having fun, kids....and come home safe!!
We love ya'll....

Hi BJ, LOVE the photos ... your family sure looks like they are having fun! BJ, why on earth are we such sissy girls (I am one too)?!? Last fall hubby and I were in Arizona driving on Route 89A in the canyon headed for Sonoma ... well I thought I was gonna die on that road! LOL I just felt like we were gonna fly off the side of the road ... and my husband is a good driver, can't imagine if I would have been in the car with someone who wasn't!! I'm sure I missed some really beautiful scenery (at least that's what Bill tells me!) because I couldn't look anywhere except straight ahead. Have you ever done this? Haha! Enjoy your family's stories and photos ... they are great! Hugs, Suzy from PA

Those are wonderful photos, BJ. Your family is having such a great time under the sea! It's a magical world. How wonderful for you to share in it this way.
I had to laugh when I saw your photo and Vee's together at the top of your blog. Too funny. But a real commentary of the weather lately.

Good morning bj, I LOVE these terrific photos. Amazing for under water. Your family is so precious and I know you are thrilled to have them.

I often say we are so blessed to have a wonderful family that loves each other and their parents and grandparents. This post really made me smile. Thank you for the heads up. We have been soo busy theses past weeks but I am back. Smile.
Love you too my dear sister friend.
Jeanne

These are amazing shots to be underwater. Someone definitely has a great camera. I have never been a water person, but wish I had the nerve to do this.

Cranberry Morning said...

Oh good grief, those are totally amazing photos!

Designs By Pinky said...

Thanks for sharing these fabulous pictures!!!! I wouldn't be going down there either so love seeing the pics!!!! XO, Pinky

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

Gorgeous photos!

I'd be too afraid to do any such thing too! One son and his daughter do dive, but not I. :-)

Vee said...

I'm wrapping up some rain and sending it down there directly! (If only I knew how...)

Fantastic photos. Yup. That one of Dave definitely needs its moment on the wall. I laughed so to see that his eyes really are closed. Guess one has to blink sometimes even if a big old turtle is coming along. Ha!

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Oh what a wonderful adventure!

Adam said...

That moray eel will never need anti-depressants. That's a happy face.

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

big big hugs for a great rest of the week. ( :

Audrey said...

Thanks for sharing.

Love the photos...we snorkeled in Hawaii....amazing. My husband was so much better at it than me, but it is something I will never forget!

NanaDiana said...

GREAT photos- and while I love the idea I like being ABOVE water rather than below it. What fun for the family though- xo Diana

Kathleen Grace said...

These photos are so awesome! I would dive, but not very deep! lol

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Great photos, but I don't like being under water like that. If I saw that big turtle I would have the big one.
So glad they are having a wonderful time.
Mary

Jim said...

Terrific. Thanks for your comment on my blog. :)

Rian said...

Wonderful underwater photos, BJ! And what a wonderful adventure... but I'm with you, I'll just enjoy the pictures...

Madeline's Album said...

Great underwater photos. Hope they continue to have fun and have a safe trip home. Have a blessed day. Madeline

Debbie said...

Those are fantastic! Oh how nice it must be not to be a 'fraidy cat like me. The places you can do and the things you can do...

Theresa said...

I am a sissy girl too BUT those awesome pictures makes me want to try it:). Not gonna happen. Have a blessed day dear BJ. Hugs.

Maureen Wyatt said...

Ever since Jaws - well you know. They look like they are having the time of their lives, so it might be worth getting over the nerves to do a little ocean exploring!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

First off, I admire them....much braver that I would EVER be. And yes, these images are incredible!! Glad you shared them. I especially like the turtle.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Amazing photos! It would be awesome to see all the wonders under the water, but I'm a big sissy girl, too, so never will. I wasn't always such a sissy, but the older I get....

Enjoy your day!

M.A. said...

Love this post! Looks like diving was so much fun!

TexWisGirl said...

that is truly awesome. what a great sport for the family to enjoy together! :)

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Beautiful photo's. They sound like they are having a great time. Being not so fond of water..I could never do that..but it's nice that others enjoy. You know? :)

Irene said...

What fun. Snorkeling is on my to do list.

Annesphamily said...

Those photos of the sea and life underneath are gorgeous! I particularly love that turtle! Wow! He is huge!

Enjoy your week!

Jann Olson said...

Great photos Bj. How awesome to be so close to that turtle. I have only snorkeled, but I love it. Thanks for the heads up about sweet Ceekay. She will be in my prayers! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
