110--The Cayman Islands: Under the Sea
@ CherieSpotting     Jan 06 2003 - 19:47 PST
cherie writes: Fifty-percent of the Cayman Islands econmy is dependent on one thing--diving. (The other half of the economy is based on off-shore banking accounts, but you need to have a minimum of one million dollars to open an account. Since Greg and I found our bank accounts a little short, we had to stick with scuba diving.

The Canary Islands had some of the most fantastic coral and colorful fish in the world. Greg and I have been diving almost every day and we thought we should try our luck with under-water photography. We rented a little digital camera, slipped on our flippers and set out on our photo shoot!

I now have an entire newfound respect for underwater photgraphy. I love composing pictures, but those fish just don't listen and won't hold still! They move around wherever they like and act like they own the entire ocean! Still we had fun, and caught a few colorfful snapshots.

Here are the results!

If you want to go diving, you'll need some moolah.  In the Cayman Islands, even though it is a British dependancy, they print their own money.
