Michaele shared photos from her trip to the Red Sea aboard the Red Sea Aggressor II.  Vibrant colors, sea life, soft coral she captured it all!  While aboard the Aggressor II, Michaele had opportunity to make three dives on the Thistlegorm.  The wreck is considered one of the top wreck dives in the world.   She again shared photos and talked about the importance of the site which is considered a war memorial and underwater museum of WWII wartime artifacts.
