    What are "sea" lochs?

    I see the ray and what appear to be soft corals. So, salt water? Very cool. (also something which looks like a cross between a shark and a salamander.)

    The soft corals are called dead mens fingers.


    The small fish is a dogfish....small shark.

    Where on Loch Fyne did you dive? I was considered a little nuts (daft is the word I believe they used) when I snorkeled Loch Fyne around Campbleton and Tarbet. I was in Macrihanish for a few weeks with the US Nacy stationed at the RAF base there. A little bit cold as I remember.

    According to wikipedia:
    A loch or lough is a body of water which is either a lake or a sea inlet, which may be also a firth, fjord, estuary, strait, or bay. Sea-inlet lochs are often called sea lochs.

    Thanks.
    I always presumed them to be land locked lakes.

    I can say the drive down the Mull of Kintyre is veryu nice in the spring-a lot of the time you're driving right along the Loch. Tarbet has a nice Maritime Museum too.

    Navy,
    I caught a typo for you. I reckon that you were planning to type either "Navy," or "Nancy." Either way, I got your back, bro.
