Penny and I finally dove Marineland, now that's reopened. After a very long walk from the new parking lot (carrying a tank, heavy weight belt, and a 17-lb camera, what a workout!), and a long swim from the cove, we dropped down to beautiful conditions sort-of near the point.

85 minutes, 64 degrees, 10-30ft vis. lots and lots of fish were out, including a school of baraccuda. And we saw 4 bat rays in the sand while snorkeling out to the point from the cove.

enjoy the photos, Scott
