Sunken Treasure

A new law has recently opened Greece's coastline to scuba divers, and archaeologists are worried that artifacts may be discovered and taken by underwater treasure hunters.  Experts believe there are ancient ships dating back to the first century B.C. as well as numerous antiquities just waiting to be discovered.  Has anyone done any diving in Greece?

It would be very exciting to discover history underwater, but it presents a dilemma - should scuba divers be permitted to scour under the sea for sunken treasure?

At the Movies: TAKEN

TAKEN - a new action movie starring Liam Neeson - is currently in theaters.  Luc Besson, the son of two scuba diving instructors, is one of the writers of the screenplay.  What caught my eye in this article is that Besson directed a diving film called "The Big Blue."  Has anyone seen it?  Has anyone seen "Taken" yet?  

I haven't seen a lot of great diving films, but I'll be checking out "The Big Blue" as soon as I get the chance and will report.  Nice to be back in the blogosphere.

Hugs and fishes,
