An Expensive Loss - Diving the Pyramids

For the morning dive, we all took boats out to the Pyramids and did a bit of a drift along some scenic sections of the reef.  Rania and I had a delightful time snorkeling in the shadow of the volcano.

Unfortunately, it was quite an expensive dive.  The picture below shows the last time we saw Tracy's diamond.  Somehow when getting her gear off - or perhaps during the afternoon snorkel, one of the prongs on the diamond ring broke.  Like All the Light We Cannot See, this gem is back as part of the ocean.  It was very sad to notice it later in the afternoon - seeing the empty prong.  It's also a sad, but good reminder of what matters in life - and material possessions are far down the list.
