A stormy week gave Lynne the opportunity to paint a seascape

Lynne’s recent pictures can be found here

After diving all week we again went snorkelling on my day off – photographs

We have been here a month. I am browner, stronger and a little wiser. The countryside was beautifully green and full of flowers. It now looks like late August in a good summer.

Lynne is painting and looking after me the second task is harder for her than the first I expect.

My diving log is here (more…)
