A few videos

Because I'm "time zone challenged" these days.  I thought I'd take advantage of still being awake at 4:30am and throw a few videos up for your viewing pleasure.  I don't think that I can get enough of being in the land of free and abundant wi-fi, so I may as well take advantage of my insomnia and be a little productive.

As an FYI... both of the videos posted below were made using our GoPro Hero 3.   It's a fun underwater camera and it helped us to get some great footage of our shark encounter, as well as, capture our trip through the Panama Canal.

The first video is of our shark "fiesta" in Fakarava.  It makes for a great screen saver if you turn down the volume, but I thought it would be fun to throw in the Jaws score just for kicks.  As I stated in a previous post, Martin and I dove with sharks over the course of 3 days and gathered footage which I spliced together for the short video below.  I especially love when one of the sharks got a little too close to the camera while Martin was filming and flicks the camera with its tail.  It was a thrilling experience to say the least.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we have.  It was really something I'll never forget because of the thrill of knowing that I was brave enough to swim with sharks.  Enjoy!

The second video is an extended version of AMARA and us going through the Panama Canal.  This time, the footage includes all three locks (it seems like going through the Canal was ages ago).  I put in a few fun facts about the Canal in the footage that I thought the viewers would be interested in knowing about the Panama Canal  If you have some time, take a look.  If you start at minute 3:15 on the video it shows the new footage that I added to the previous video.  Watch it, it's pretty fun and informative.  Plus, you get to see me running around 1,000 miles an hour (which is pretty true to life these days).
