UNM. Started and ran an Engineering/Contracting business for 30 years and escaped a few years back.
Presently retired from - FPE Consultant/Professional Diver.
We love travel, boating and diving, cruising and playing with our grandkids.

We travel a lot but no place beats home...the mountains, the New Mexican food and NM blue skies and sun. Remember that smell of roasting chiles in the fall? Yeah, like that...

A most happy belated birthday wish, Bob!

An old friend (most of mine are..) told me that when you wake up in the morning and if you don't hit wood when you spread your arms out, it's gonna be a good(!) day! Hope yours was great! PS thanks for all your great humor on the website!! Always makes me laugh...

Have a bodacious birthday, buddy (E. Jane Williams would be proud of that alliteration, eh?).

Try using only one candle this year, otherwise California gets nervous when they see that much firelight.

And you can Party till Laura says: "that's enough, Craig! " see the attached picture

What happens when a Brown Footed Boobie makes friends with a bunch of divers... Watch the video: Philippines 2018

View from Puerto Galera Diver's Bar. The name of the bar (50 Bar) is a dive joke, as 50 bar pressure in your tank means 'Dive over!'

Hangin out in Fiji. The Bligh Waters north of Viti Levu are a top favorite dive location. The soft coral is breathtaking in beautiful colors.

Diving in Little Cayman on Bloody Bay Wall, I met some interesting new friends. Although most grouper aren't this friendly, the Nassau Grouper here are called 'reef puppies' for their friendly behavior. Jerry (the Grouper) wanted me to help him catch the fish under that rock!

Trip to Philippines with favorite dive group. Flew into Manila then down to Puerto Galera. Stayed a week at Atlantis Dive Resort diving nearby reefs.

Back to Manila and flew over to Puerto Princesa on Palowan Island and boarded Atlantis Azores dive boat.

We then sailed to the middle of the Sulu Sea to dive a very remote archipelago called Tubbataha for a week.

Dakuwaqa's Garden - Underwater footage from Fiji & Tonga

I did not shoot this video, but this is what we see in the 'Bligh Waters' in Fiji (north of Viti Levu). Some of the most beautiful soft coral in the world! Thanks to Videographer Nick Hope.


Dakuwaqa is a shark-god from Fijian mythology.
