2 Tank Dive today~!

Well I got to make my 2 tank dive today~! It wasn’t to the two dive sites I was told it was going to be at – but I got to make two dives, from a boat no less~! So definitely not complaining. As a rule, you have very little surface swimming doing a boat dive as opposed to most shore dives where you surface swim out to a drop down point, do your dive, then swim all the way back in. Where with a boat, you drop off the boat into the dive site, do your dive looking around, then pop up right back at the boat…… That is why I like boat dives….. a whole lot less kicking~! I have been to the first site we went to and there were some real bad memories of it [it had an ugly strong current that day that I dove it and I didn’t get to do much of anything other than swim – hard!] but I bailed in hoping for the best. Much, much, much better~! Really good visibility and almost no current what-so-ever~! Lots of coral, a turtle, 2 sting rays… nice dive~! Wrapped the dive up after 48 minutes loaded back into the boat and headed to our next dive site. A new one for me and I was looking forward to it. We waited the appropriate amount of time to let the nitrogen seep from our bodies before gearing back up and going back down. Visibility had dropped off some and there was a mild current – but nothing bad. Got some real good pictures of a massive Lobster. Got a little bit of video of him as well, but you’ll have to go to FB to see it as I still haven’t figured out what the deal is with this two-bit web site. Second dive was not as enjoyable for me as the first one, but it was still a fun dive – and like usual, cannot wait for the next one~! Finally back at the pier, gear unloaded, rinsed off and headed back to mid island to see my Queen. I put my gear up, took a shower to rinse the salt off and settled in with a drink to watch some TV.

We finished up Season 6 of Mountain Men, just to find out they have not released Season 7 yet……. bastards 🙁 Now we have to come up with something else to numb our minds with. We wound up watching a movie….. pretty good one called Mud – it stars Matthew McConahey (?) and Reese Witherspoon. Pretty good movie – I recommend it if you haven’t seen it.

I am having some kind of issue with this website (besides the video piece) – it was acting weird last night and doing it again tonight… and heard from a couple of folks saying they had a hard time getting into it – so bear with me – I’ll get it figured out.

Good Night Ya’ll ” ” ” ” ” ” ” Thankx for stopping in~!

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
