At the request of my friend, Madame Weebles, I’m posting a few shots from our visit to Grand Cayman last year. All of the stingray photos were taken at a dive site called Stingray City. There has been a long tradition for dive boats to visit this sandy bottomed bay and feed the rays. In 1993, Peter and I visited and at that time, they allowed us to feed the stingrays, but in recent years, the government has limited the feeding to be done only by the dive masters. They also limit the number of boats allowed on the site on any given day so as not to alter the behavior of the rays (too much?)…all good things, I think.
There is also a photo here of an Eagle Ray that we saw – my first ever. They’re large, magnificent creatures and it was quite a thrill to see this one.
Finally, I have been riffing on my diving trips recently and I’m going to get back to more serious writing next week. But thank you for indulging me in two of my passions: photography and scuba diving – and what I love about these is that I get to do them both at the same time. Have a great weekend!
