Underwater photography by Rob

I neglected to mention that my friends, Rob and Diane, are accomplished scuba divers and have dove in waters all over the world.  Rob takes gorgeous photos – here are some of his images from the South Pacific.

I’m visiting my friends, Diane and Rob, in Ft. Myers before traveling on to Mexico tomorrow. While Rhode Island has been experiencing a blizzard and very low temps, the weather here has been sunny and warm.  How lucky am I!

Diane is a very talented artist who has worked in jewelry and painting, but now is concentrating on ceramics. She sells her wonderful fishes and Sea Spirits in a gallery on Captiva Island.  Here she is arranging her display.



Here are a couple of her paintings.
