I heard on the news today that Google Maps now has a "virtual dive" on the reef.

That could be very cool. A couple days ago I saw something about Google mapping the ocean but didn't get a chance to read it. I have always wanted to scuba dive but can't because of my ear. I have to settle for snorkeling or watching underwater programs.

I heard you can be cremated and scattered in the reefs when you die, which apparently is very good for helping them regrow. Dunno if there is any truth in it, but someone told me that is their wishes for when they die.

I imagine a reef at sunset would be a beautiful place to have a small ceremony and ashes scattered.
