For all of you Twilight fans, here is the actual clock tower in Volterra! It is just an hours drive from Livorno so we made the trip, it was well worth the drive! not for the movie but for the city. It is amazing that a city like this still stands.

So as you think about getting away from the hustle and bustle of life and you want to get away from the cold and go really relax consider going on a cruise to the Caribbean Sea. There are some great deals out there right now. A beautiful place awaits you. And if you go make sure that you spend some time snorkeling. If you don't take the time to see what is under the surface of the ocean then you are missing half the beauty. It is an amazing world under the surface of the sea.
So go on a cruise and snorkel while you are there. If you have any questions about the islands that you read about on these pages send me a note and I will respond. Make sure that you use Kapitol Reef snorkel gear.

Yesterday, I went to Sand Hollow with Nick again and Mike Christensen another son in law. Mike found a couple of Cat fish in a nest protecting their new babys. A whole school of baby catfish, they were so small that it looked like big mass of black. It was a little weird because one fish stayed down and over the top of the baby's while the bigger one swam above the other and watched us. It seemed as though they would attack if we were to get too close so we kept our distance. It was fascinating. See the above picture.

There is a gap in th mountain where you can walk from the Sea of Cortez to the Pacific Ocean. The beach on the Cortez side is called Lovers Beach. The Beach on the Pacific side is called Divorce Beach. I am standing on Divorce Beach and taking a picture through the gap at Lovers Beach with a Carnival Cruise ship in the back ground.
This is the bridge at Lands End. Look at that water. It is rough in there.
There is some good reef here especailly close to Pelican Rock where the underwater shots were taken.
As you go around the corner and enter the Pacific side they say DO NOT get into the water or you will drown. Very strong under currents that make getting back in to shore next to impossible. While we were there someone went in and the rescue people were called out to save them.
What a great place to vacation. Lots of beauty and fairly inexpensive. Look at that guy using the Kapitol Reef Snorkel. Smart man.
