Last Thursday, I saw the Lionfish, and posted about it here. I called the Dept of Environment and the secretary said she’d have somebody call me, nobody called.
Yesterday he was still there. So I called again. Today they came and I showed them where the Lionfish was an they got him.

Happy Birthday, Queen of England!

LONDON (AP) — Queen Elizabeth II marked her official birthday Saturday with her family by her side — and hundreds of soldiers parading in front of her.

The queen turned 83 in April, but tradition holds that “Trooping the Colour” — the public party for the monarch’s birthday — is held in June when the weather is better. The custom dates from 1748, and this year’s parade was held in bright sunshine.

The parade featured more than 1,100 soldiers, including the famous Foot Guards, who wear bright red coats and bearskin hats.

Wearing a peacock blue coat and matching hat, the queen traveled in an open carriage down The Mall through central London. She was accompanied by her husband, Prince Philip, and Prince Charles and Princess Anne rode on horseback behind her. Princes William and Harry also attended the ceremony, accompanying their stepmother Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

After the parade, the family gathered on the balcony at Buckingham Palace for a Royal Air Force fly-by.

My new profile picture

the entrance

the little cove

I was at Smiths Cove, walking around barefoot on the sharp rocks, when I found this litle cove, I said to myself, “I’m going to swim in there. The next time I went snorkeling there, I swam around and found the entrance, and went in. Even though the waves were small, it was like a washing machine in there, and I was a little worried about hitting the rocks, especialy going through the skinny parts, but put my camera on auto timer and took my picture.

That’s the story of my new profile photo!


During my lunchtime snorkel yesterday, I found a Lionfish. I had my camrea so I took these pics. The Lionfish is invading from the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean and has no predators here. It is very dangerous to have them around. Here’s an article, if you do a search on Cayman Lionfish” you will find a lot of info about them.
