New Beach….. new dive site

I forgot to mention yesterday that I had a dive to make this afternoon – a lead up to a meeting of another group I am part of. It’s called Adaptive Diving and it’s about being able to support handicapped folks who want to SCUBA dive. We met out at Sweet Bottom Dive Shop – got our tanks and headed out to a place I have been wanting to check out. It is the Carambola Resort here on the island. The only all-inclusive resort that I know of on the island. It is not open to the general public yet, as it is still rebuilding from the damage from the storms (Hurricane’s Irma and Maria). Hard to get into right now, but our group was allowed access to make a dive off of their beach. Visibility left a lot to be desired and entry was a challenge as we had 3′-4′ swells to swim through to get out to where we wanted to drop. Fun site, course, a new dive site usually is…. even with bad visibility – it was a fun dive. Saw a couple of sharks that came in close enough for some pictures and one really cooperative turtle…….. I’m afraid you’re gonna have to wait until tomorrow for the dive pictures though….. it’s almost 10:00p here and I am pooped. After cleaning up from the dive – we had a meeting for the Adaptive Dive Committee. There was alcohol available and I made sure to cover my part — finally back here and showered….. I’m fading fast, so I’m gonna wait until tomorrow to upload and edit dive pictures for you………

Am told DD is ready~!! Part of tomorrow will be getting the truck back and hopefully the rental back to the airport~! I just saw my charge for the rental… $2000.00~!! That’s just for the month — I have another several days to add to it  🙁  Right now, just to worn out to do much else…. so signing out for tonight……

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~!!!! ;-)
