After a surface interval we dove site number two, for Dive number 231.
The Site chosen for the dive was Lone Star Ledges - a series of coral ledges that rose above the sandy floor, allowing for lots of interesting marine life.
Mike and I decided to do our own thing and navigate the Ledges on our own without the guide.
The site had abundant interesting coral and fish:
Then just as the dive was ending and Mike and I headed for the up line, we saw this:
Absolutely majestic, the stingray "flew" through the water with grace and beauty that was just breathtaking.
Seeing the stingray was very happy-making.
Soon it was time to leave, but what a great dive.
Red Sail Sports then too us back to the beach from where their boat had picked us up, with plenty of time to have a leisurely stroll back to the ship.
I can certainly say that Red Sail Sports ran a fantastic dive op and it was simply a fantastic experience.
