Winter . . . what is winter?

A compilation of videos that I've shot over the last few months here on Kwaj. Bonus points if you're enough of a nerd to recognize where the music is from.

Turtle Wrestling

I now have a new job I can add to my list of work experience: Professional Sea Turtle Wrangler.

Once a year, we need to pull our two pet sea turtles, Speedo and Big Guy, out of their pond for their yearly medical checkup, and to give them a scrub-down. This requires a couple of people to get into their pond and physically grab them, which is MUCH harder then you'd think. They can move quickly when they want to!

Night Diving

I know that for a lot of people, swimming around in the ocean at night is one of the scariest things they can imagine, but it's one of the coolest things one can do here. Unfortunetly, the camera isn't nearly sensitive enough to capture the luminecant plankton that you can see with all the dive lights shut off.
