Scooter Diving...with Whales!


My good friends Greg and Liz Walker run a small scuba dive tour business and have taken me out several times. I am so sorry to say that I was not with them today when they spotted a couple Humpback Whales on their dive...extremely rare to see as a scuba diver and they were able to get some good footage. Ive seen whales plenty of times above the surface, but never underwater like this. Pretty amazing!! Greg and Liz are two of the nicest people you will ever meet and I am happy to call them my friends.

I spent my day problem solving on the Canon 6D Crash Course training video, which I think I have figured out. I ran into some HUGE problems converting it for download. The main editing etc, is all fine, but something I do on all my downloads is include chapter markers for navigation (typically between 65-100 different chapters depending on the video). Without them, its a nightmare to find the info you are looking for and there is a specific way to do it on a download, that can only be done by 2 programs working together, Final Cut Pro X and Compressor, neither of which like my computer very much. May have a few more wrinkles to iron out, but yes, its looking like I see a light at the end of the tunnel.

On Sunday night Ill be headed out to Orlando with one of my best friends Warren and his kids to visit Disney World and Universal Studios. Ill be there for about a week on vacation, but we should start seeing the finalists for the contest popping up soon. Thanks for your patience!
