I always continue to search for more, above and below the water! It was so nice to have my @sfljerseygirl by my side the last week.
This was at Shitten bay in St Kitts. Yeah I shit you not! 🀣. This is one shot with an 8" dome port. Thanks for getting us there @fsnevis !

Last night a handful of people experiencing their first nesting Hawksbill sea turtle below the Milky Way in Nevis @fsnevis. At this point she is nearly done laying her eggs. The red lights with @conserveturtles are low wavelength to help reduce the chance of disturbing her. -

4th of July has a lot of great traditions celebrating America. Shooting explosives (littering) over the water is a beautiful thing to watch but terrible for so much of the environment. Be smart out there! #oceanminded -

The meaning of Father's Day has changed a lot over the last two years for me. I've got some big shoes to fill and a lot of adventures to live with both of these legends! Happy Father's Day! Thanks dad for making me rad!
