    DOXA Cave Diving in Bermuda

    Here are some shots of me and my friend Terrence Tysall, founder of the Cambrian Foundation. We were in Bermuda doing government sanctioned work for his Master's thesis in marine speleobiology in the Wallsingham cave system. We were diving sidemount (cylinders on our sides, not on back), with an image of me humping a cylinder into the bush to the cave entrance, one of Terrence toting cylinders on a motor scooter (you can't rent cars on Bermuda, which is makes things challenging for cavers), and a couple shots of me in air dome where the cave gets so shallow it breaks the surface. The beauty of the air domes is that they're untouched -- you see caves the way they look before people get in there an break things. Fortunately, these sites have government protection, restricted access and are hard to get to anyway, so diving them was a real priviledge.

    Thanks for checking them out. I forgot to mention, I was there for the arrival of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Bertha. Although the winds were down to "only" 50-60 mph, we had road flooding, power failures and water finding its way in through closed windows and doors. Lost a day of diving, and everything was pretty much back to normal by early the next morning.

    The "icicles" hanging down ...stalagmites or stalagtites (I forget which)...what mineral are they? Fascinating. What a privilege! You've got that right! And yes, stay safe! Thanks for sharing these pictures and your story.

    More please.

    Encore.

    :thanks


    God Bless, Liz

    Thanks. They're stalactites, made principally of calcium carbonate. They are as fragile as they look, so you feel a bit like you're walking around a shop full of fine china and crystal wearing large steel objects.
