Pic of the Day – Mr G Goes to School
Mr G Goes to School in Cozumel
Today’s image was captured at Paseo del Cedral (Cedar Pass) in beautiful Cozumel. There are many lovely sites on Cozumel, but Cedral continues to be one of my favourites, even though I have done many, many dives on it. To me, it never gets old – lovely swim throughs, schooling fish (like this gaggle of grunts), little macro critters, almost always a shark and a turtle or two – I could dive it for days and never get weary of it.
On our return from the trip on which this image was taken (May 2012), I finally put pen to paper (or, more accurately, fingers to keyboard ;^) and wrote up a big, juicy trip report for this location. I figured that after at least ten visits, it was about time. And because I had several friends who had never been there query me about Cozumel – ie where to stay, who to dive with, where to eat, etc, etc, I really went to town on those kind of details. Plus there are lots of pix, like the one above.

About Judy G Diver
Born and raised on the west coast of Canada, I have always felt a strong connection to the sea. But for many years, I stayed on the surface, afraid of what lurked down deep. When I was in my early 30's, with three young children (aka the P's), my husband (aka Mr G) signed us up for a SCUBA certification course, as a surprise. Although I had my fears, my stubbornness prevailed, and somehow I made it through four murky, frigid, cold water dives in Vancouver to successfully pass the course. Soon after we went diving off the west coast of Mexico, in the Sea of Cortez, where my eyes were opened to the beauty and other-worldliness of the life down under.
And the rest, as they say, is history.
I currently have well over 2000 dives under the belt, and I have been fortunate to travel extensively in Asia, Australia, Fiji, Galapagos, Costa Rica, California, the Caribbean, Mexico and here in British Columbia.
After shooting hefty DSLRs for many years, I just switched over to a groovy Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera, in a Nauticam housing, with dual Sea & Sea strobes and a bag full of lenses. In addition to this blog and my personal website (Awoosh.com/Directory), which is linked at the top of the blog, my stuff has been widely published in a variety of magazines and websites, including an ongoing regular monthly feature on Scubadiving.com. All links to this work can be found in this blog.
