THE DIVING WAS AS GOOD AS I HAVE SEEN IN THE CARRIBEAN IN A WHILE.  THE
LION FISH HAVE NOT GOTTEN DOWN TO ST LUCIA YET.  BLACK URCHINS WERE
PLENTIFUL SO THE ALGAE WAS UNDER CONTROL;  I SAW NO CALCARIOUS LEAF ANGAE
WHICH IS SO PREVELENT IN THE CARRIBEAN.  SOFT CORALS WERE IN GOOD SHAPE. 
HARD CORAL WAS SHOWING SOME STORM DAMAGE.  FISH WERE LIMITED TO THE USUAL
SMALL TROPICALS AND MANY SMALL EELS.  THOMAS RUNS A GOOD SAFE  SHOP;  I
RECOMMEND HIM AND HIS PEOPLE HIGHLY. WE HAD PLANNED TO DIVE WITH ANOTHER
SHOP BUT THEY TOLD US THAT THERE WERE NOT ENOUGH DIVERS TO MAKE IT WORTH
THEIR WHILE AND SO THEY HAD CANCELLED.  THOMAS SENT A BOAT WITH A
DIVEMESTER AND CAPTAIN  FOR JUST THE TWO OF US.
