Underwater Photos:  Belize and Mexico, February to April 2008

With the exception of the last two photos, all of these were taken by our friends Jon & Heather on Evergreen.  We got our new camera and underwater housing toward the end of the trip, are learning to use it, and hope to take photos like these in the future.
