Back in the water today

After many days working on dry land, I made it back in the water for a 2+ hour snorkel at Penguin Spit. The display screen on my Olympus TG-2 camera cracked and flooded during a dive near the start of this trip. This has been very frustrating, since I also used this camera for most of my terrestrial photos. It fit easily in my pocket, and it didn't matter if I got caught in a downpour which happens frequently on Palmyra. The good news is I was able to use one of the GoPro cameras during my snorkel. I still would have preferred my Olympus since it has built in color compensation for doing underwater photography. I ordered a new camera online, and it is waiting for me back in Pacific Grove.

Here are some screen grabs from the video I shot with the GoPro.
