We made another attempt at snorkeling yesterday. I may be starting to get the hang of this. I'm reasonably certain we saw yellowstripe goatfish (stirring up sand with their wiskers then nosing forward looking for lunch), several convict tangs, a threadfin butterfly fish (he looked woven), Moorish idol (one of the Finding Nemo fish), possibly some yellowtail coris, a handful of long and skinny trumpet fish, and several others we couldn't find on our find-a-fish card.

Finally saw Pirates of the Caribbean last night. It may be the silliest movie ever. I remember precisely one thing from the ride in Disneyland: the "working women" gathered around the kegs of rum, showing the sailors a good time. I suppose that tableau is memorable to many people since it managed to work itself into the movie. Interesting, though, that this is the memory I have of the ride. I think I was 9 or 10 at the time, so I probably didn't even get it.
