|For Thanksgiving we headed down to the Bahamas for some scuba diving. Our first dive site was Shipyard, where this colourful Coney had made its home.||Hiding below one of the wrecks was this Green Moray Eel.||Vestigal guard rails on an overturned ship.||Margaret behind the the propeller of a ship resting on its side.|
|Our second dive was at Lighthouse Reef. Here we see a Blue Parrot Fish... pining for the fjords.||A Sting Ray gliding gracefully through the water.||Margaret gliding gracefully through the water.||A smaller ray hiding in the sand.|
|Beautiful corals appeared to spring forth from the concrete bollards of the artificial reef.||A Squirrelfish.||The next day we dived the Lost Blue Hole, a two-hundred foot deep hole in the bottom of the sea floor. One-hundred feet below the surface, looking back up, only our bubbles escape the stygian darkness of this underwater cenote.||A Bahamian Lobster lurking deep within the pit.|
|Returning to the seabed, we found a Nurse Shark awaiting us.||On our last dive, at Barracuda Shoals, we fed the fish, which made us very popular with them.||These Plume Worms, no larger than a finger nail, reminded us of little Christmas trees.||An Angel Fish.|
|A Nassau Grouper.||Margaret's turn to feed the fish.||Back ashore it was time to relax island style.||Apparently, we didn't get each others' memos about t-shirt colours that day.|
|On our final day we visited Fort Fincastle.||One side of the fort was architected to be reminiscent of a ship's prow.||Once the highest point on New Providence, the fort's canon defended Nassau's port.||Man the cannon!|
|A perfect end to a perfect Thanksgiving get-away.|
