Lauren And The Sea Grass Expert Robin

Lauren And The Sea Grass Expert Robin

Lauren explored with me with a few months ago with her family. This time it was just her and Robin the sea grass specialist and swimmer. The weather was perfect and the water unusually clear. I wish all days were like this. Lauren had a new underwater camera that she let me use. I enjoyed testing this camera. Lauren is a sand dollar connoisseur and on this trip she added a few to her collection. Robin  enjoyed wiping the sea grass from her mask as she found many new shells. She thought the whole experience was shell excellent. (Robin was not only a sea grass expert but a clever wordsmith.)  The trip ended too soon. Lauren found many sand dollars and Robin enjoyed the sea grass. Thank you Lauren for the use of your underwater camera. I look forward to our next adventure and Robin’s report on the sea grass of southwest Florida.

    The underwater photos are great. Do you recall the type of camera? The colors above and below the water are beautiful.

    Janet, It was a fiji fine Pix XP60. It was a great little point and shoot. I may buy one myself.
