Diving with turtles

Went diving with Joel who's the co-owner of Overboard who make all kinds of products to keep your gear dry and sand free. Joel and Dan are sponsoring us this year and have kindly donated all the bags we need to keep GPS's, notebooks and tagging equipment safe on the beaches. Appropriately, two turtles (both loggerheads) graced us with their presence!
