    Hi everyone, I love your blog site! Also enjoyed the pictures & the videos on filleting Lionfish & scuba diving. Your itinerary looks exciting; wish I was there with all of you. I am Ms. Randell’s sister, and she’ll tell you I always watched deep sea diving programs growing up as a kid. Have a great time & learn lots from your research.

Ask Ms. Randell; I’m her sister. She’ll tell you I used to watch all the deep sea diver programs growing up. Maybe I could play my own “Sea Hunt” video, Steph. Hah!
