Hey all... hope the summer is treating you all well.

The tropicals are in off Rhode Island. I recently did a dive off Ft Weatherill. Temps in the 70s, 10+ feet of visibility and lots of sea life. Saw some flounder, a small school of scup and loads of juvenile tropicals. Hopefully soon the butterfly fish will be in.

Very excited for an upcoming shark dive. This year there have been multiple reports of hammerheads making their way north. And to add more excitement locally, humpbacks were again seen in LI Sound this summer.

Thanks to Michelle Lapin for presenting at our July meeting. I was sad I missed the presentation and the pre-meeting lobster fest organized by Jeff Susa.

August is our annual movie night, and this year we will be showing the Jules Verne classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Capt. Nemo and the Nautilus are waiting to show off some cool (for the day) special affects and underwater footage.

If you are member of the Maritime Aquarium, check out the new calendar. Just behind the Moon Jellies (November's Pin Up) is one of our own as Santa (Mr. December). Maybe you can guess who, butt than again maybe not. Anyway, if you look at the calendar as a whole, its pretty cool. Features pics of sharks, seals, octopus, otters and other TMA exhibits.
