Paul Lipsky, a graduate of the Florida Sea Base Divemaster Academy, and former FSB staff member recently won first place in the NAUI Just Dive Photo Contest in the category “Best Diver Shot”.  The model in the photo is his brother, Alex Lipsky.  (Alex is also a graduate of the DMA, Eagle Scout and former FSB staff member.)  The photo was taken this past summer on a dive at the Florida Sea Base.  If you have visited the official site of the Florida Sea Base, www.bsaseabase.org. you may have seen a photo of a dolphin jumping out the water.  That photo was taken by Alex Lipsky.

It was a quiet day at the Florida Sea Base yesterday.  The Rangers worked on landscaping.  The Conference staff worked on Ships Store inventory.  Laura worked on scuba gear.  I spent the morning in the office and went to the mainland in the afternoon.

Our weather was great.  The wind was a little brisk from the East, but everything else was picture perfect.  I didn’t find any references on the forecasted system that was on the wire two days ago.  I don’t know if it totally fizzled or just isn’t newsworthy yet.  It was projected to form near Columbia and move towards Nicaragua.  I will keep an eye out for any updates.

Short and sweet.  Have a great day.

    Thanks for putting me in the blog! I don’t want any undue credit though. I’m not an Eagle Scout and it was actually Alex Lipsky (who is an Eagle scout) that took the photo of the Dolphin.

    Sorry for the erroneous info. I will correct that. Capt. Steve
