The number 13 is NOT an unlucky number

So we have stayed at Akumal Bay Beach & Wellness Resort 13 times now. This time was November 18 -28, 2018 and it was as special as ever, with great snorkeling , food, weather, and visits with our amigos that still work there and we made some new friends as well. All but one day was sargassum free (ish); all but one day the bay was calm (ish); and the clarity of the water wasn't as good as I've ever seen, but really decent. The link to my video follows below. I tried to get the length of it under 10 minutes but with 9 days of snorkeling, the best I could do is 14 minutes. As usual we saw a couple of new things we have not seen before- several High Hat fish and a Scorpion fish! Here's the link (make sure the setting on the vid is HD 1080 for the best quality.

    That was absolutely fabulous Waterbaby.  You take great shots.
     
    What camera?
    What program do you use to take the photos and videos over to do the Youtube video?
     
    I will probably need to come look at this again next time I am stressed :)

    Thanks Crunch, your kind words are greatly appreciated! My camera is a Ricoh made by pentax. It is not expensive but (knock on wood) it has been very reliable now for 3 years. All my photos get reviewed and edited many times. I clear them up as much as possible either with photoshop or windows editor. I then make a video using windows movie maker and then upload the video to my youtube channel. It's time consuming, but I really love doing it

    Loved loved loved your video.  I just sat here, at work, in the middle of the night, smiling and feeling like I was back "home".  
     
    Did you find any differences in being there in November compared to summertime?  We were there in October, but, are looking at either November or December for our next trip.  Actually, I kinda wish we could go back right now, but, for now, your video will get me by.  Thanks for sharing it.  Maybe we'll be ABR neighbors again some time. 
     
    Thirteen has always been a lucky number for us, we were married on the 13th, Friday the 13th to boot.  Can't wait til we can say it's our 13th trip to ABR.  
     
    When I saw the two eagle rays on your video I was astounded.  Tim spent our entire trip trying to find one and never saw a single one.  Where did you find them?

    Teri, we have been there in Nov. 3 times and find it  just as enjoyable as any other month.  the days are not as hot as when we were there in Sept., not too bad of wind and chop, but I think it's all you get what you get and hard to predict. 
    Seeing an Eagle Ray was always a benchmark for our snorkeling but now that we've seen a Nurse Shark our last two visits, it may be our new one. Seeing a really cool thing that isn't a usual suspect is a lot like arrowhead hunting. You just have to be in the right spot at the right time. We have seen the rays throughout the bay, but they do feed in the sandy areas it seems. 
    We're looking at going back in Sept. and hoping to see a turtle nest hatch again.
