Up bright and early to watch a beautiful sunrise and get ready for a day of SCUBA diving. Arrived in Frederiksted a couple of minutes before 09:00 and loaded my gear into the waiting boat. First dive site was called the Deep Wrecks. Notably one large tug was the star of the site, sitting in about 100-110′ of water. Lots of fish life and interesting things to look at. A couple of doable swim throughs. Sure was intriguing peering inside the ship. I could see where a person would want to get wreck certified to go exploring inside of those dudes~! Spent 40 minutes on that dive with a max depth of 108′. Water temperature was a wonderfully warm 80°. Finally onboard and moved to the second dive site called the Shallow wrecks. I have been to this site before, but this trip turned out to be more of an exploratory dive and it seemed like about all we did was swim. I can tell that in light of the fact I only went to 70′ and only got 34 minutes underwater. (a 70′ dive would normally be more like 50-55 minutes for me) The old fat boy uses up a LOT more air when I have to do a lot of kicking. Oh well – it was time in the water and it was nice to be breathing underwater again……
Came back to my Queen – got a quick shower then headed out for a fund raiser going on out at Castaways. Nice event to help the family of a Recovery Worker here on the island that was killed during a robbery. The funds from the event going to his family to help pay expenses. Nice turn out and I hope they raised a lot of money for them.
I’m gonna cut it short — My nose is running and I think I have picked up a bug in my laptop. Nothing is working the way it should – so gonna have to reach out to the Geek Squad tomorrow and see if they can un-bug me….. de-bug me… fix whatever the issue is. Hopefully I can get pictures to load. (More tomorrow of the dives)
Good night Ya’ll ….. Thankx for stopping in~!
