Our diving experience in Aguadilla was pretty fun! It was a mellow shore dive and we were the only ones out (except a few local Puerto Ricans who were very curious about our mission that day!!). Evan and I went down and immediately spotted a lionfish. He bought me this mini-spear called a "lion tamer" that a guy in Florida invented to easily kill lionfish. So after watching Evan take down the first one, it was my turn to try!! On my first shot, I got a little one! Then for the rest of the dive, I wanted to be the hunter and I let Evan take over the photography!

Except, I wasn't successful again at capturing any more, but Evan speared a few more big ones. :) When we got back on shore, it attracted a lot of attention. We had several people stopping us on the beach to ask about the lionfish and to ask about diving. We felt like celebrities ! One woman even had her kids pose with us haha

Today is Friday and I'm ready for the weekend. I want to relax and just enjoy this beautiful place!
