Diving in the depths

Am doing a dive course at the moment, which is very exciting. Diving around Rabaul is fabulous with 28 degree water temperatures, great visibility and a brilliant array of fish and corals. Much of the diving is found in pristine natural areas without the damage of over-tourism. There are some spectacular wall dives and many World War II wrecks to explore as well.

A number of dive resorts operate around the province and there are a number of live-aboard dive boats traveling between dive sites. We are getting more and more divers coming this way as the secret leaks out.

This is a beautiful featherstar taken on a dive in Blanche Bay, Rabaul by Martin.

Very cool shot.

About your question on
New Orleans Daily Photo of "what is a beignet?"

The beignet is a square piece of dough, fried and covered with powdered sugar. They are served in orders of three. A lot of companies make them these days, but in my opinion, no one can match the Cafe Du Monde -- it's a tourist spot and a spot for the locals right at the foot of Jackson Square opposite the St. Louis Cathedral.

Steve that sounds so yummy. When I am feeling better I might make an order - would they deliver to PNG??
