The Fall of 2020 Sept 1 to Dec 31 – shutdown continues

Back in the 90s Maria and I and a lone male diver signed on to a six-pack dive boat to do a drift dive on a reef off St Croix.
Amazing reef, hundreds of thousands of schooling fish, healthy corals and terrific viz. Pre-climate change days. We were at 60 ft and were planning a dive of 50 minutes. Boat was to follow our bubbles. We whizzed above the corals barely having to kick.
When we came to the surface after a 5 minute stop at 15 feet, we found ourselves alone a fair distance offshore and a long way from our boat. Unbeknownst to us the current had changed and we drifted one way while the boat went in another pushed by a different surface current.
Pictured is Maria and an American CIA agent who signed on for the dive. We pumped up our BCs and waited and waited and waited. Talked ourselves out.
Weren’t particularly worried, since we weren’t far from shore, but we were concerned the nanny we hired to look after our sons back at the hotel might freak out. Also thought about the reef sharks we had seen below. After taking this picture were able to flag down the boat that was searching for us!
Actress Dawn Wells best known for her role as Mary Ann Summers on the Gilligan’s Island sitcom (1964 until 1967) has passed away due to the Covid virus. She was in Toronto five years ago to help open the Toronto International Boat Show. I got her to pose for this picture in a very expensive Sea Ray, a far cry from the Minnow. Very knowledgeable about boats and fishing and Toronto. A joy to photograph.
