Blistering Beautiful and Staggeringly Depressing

Been in the water diving the past two days. Yesterday did a 40 foot dive and saw very few fishes. The shore drops off immediately to a vertigo-embedding abyss. Then did a 15 foot dive along rock cliff and saw an insane number of cichlids. Today more diving and we began to practice sampling protocol for primary production measurements.
