Crystal waters

Alligator Reef is what they call this light house. Its about a mile off of HWY 1 on the keys....and was named after a US Naval ship in 1820 sumtin that was getting rid of pirates!


This water is literally crystal clear and to get this shot, I needed help with the sun behind my back....and a still boat. The water here is about 8 ft in depth and its nice and warm, even in winter. The other reef we stopped at was 25' deep!


This location was more fun to swim in. The shallow reef had a few local of which gave me a kiss on the chin ...jelly fish love!
