January 26, 2013 Another Diving Weekend

January at Aquaventure with Divenet

The end of January saw Levi and I head once again to Anilao for a great weekend of diving.  We traveled with Tony and his son Tristan and Ron.  Both Tony and Ron work with me at Crystal Steel in Ortigas.

We have three photographers that contributed to this blog:  myself, Levi and Tony...  I cannot take credit for all the pictures....
