message Thanks, Jim. This sea lion zipped around me in circles for a while and by the time she was through, I was pretty dizzy! unwell I think that was part of her plan... cool

rave!! Susan, This is especially dear to my heart. Jim and I have this on our list of 'things to do before we stop diving.' Diving with these beautiful animals with their grace and speed must be exciting (even dizzying). Thanks for bringing back this wonderful photograph. The warmth of the rays of the sun adds a lustre to the atmosphere of the photo. Good Job. Deborah C. rose

message Thanks for the compliment, Deborah. Los Islotes is a lot of fun with all the sea lions and their pups. They are curious, and it's very hard not to take tons of pictures. It's a shame I f''''ed my camera the 3rd day into the trip... mad
