WINNER: Shane Gross
‘Ponds in Time’

This inland pond (sometimes called a blue hole) formed when water levels were higher and reefs build up. As The water lowered the tunnels in the reef ended up inland from the sea. This blue hole is connected to the ocean underground through small tunnels, far too small for any diver. The passages also do not appear to transfer marine life either as what is found in here is far different from what is found in the ocean.
