Diving~!

Woke up to a bunch of clouds and evidence of a small sprinkle, but like I’ve stated – those conditions typically do not linger long. Had a cup of coffee and spent some time with my Bride before grabbing my gear and heading out the door for a couple of dives. Was informed once I was on the boat, that a new site was possible for today…. they discovered a tie off point for a dive site from apparently over 10 years ago and it hasn’t been dove on since. Wow – being the first to hit a site that hasn’t been dove on in over a decade….. I was excited~! They were going to attach a new buoy line to it once we got to it – but it would be well worth the wait~! Because of conditions, they opted to go to a new favorite spot of mine first- called Rust-Op-Twist. I like it because it tends to hold sharks~! I wasn’t disappointed as we soon had 3 sharks watching us do our thing. Sadly, because of very cloudy water, low light and not being able to “call them in” – pictures lack considerably.  I did my best trying to lure them in, but nothing me or the Dive Master did would bring them in very close. We finally finished up the dive and headed for the ‘new’ site — The Dive Master bailed off and I pitched him the materials he needed once he was in the water.  It took him 20 minutes to get the new line tied – but it is in place and ready to be used now. He said visibility was horrible, but he did spot one ‘massive’ turtle….. so hopefully it’s a resident turtle and she’ll be there on future dives. We motored to our second dive site – Gentle Winds — not know for a lot of sea life – but tons of beautiful corals. Again, less than stellar visibility and low light made getting decent pictures of anything a challenge, but I managed a couple. Compared to my last 2 dives – these two almost sucked…… but they didn’t, because every dive is enjoyable for me….. even when I have people floating up into me or crawling on me….. I’m in the water – and that is a good thing~!

Back for a shower and uploading pictures….. a dinner of corn dogs and French fries and more episodes of Suits. A wonderfully relaxing evening. Our ‘island kids’ are supposed to be here for a big breakfast of biscuits and gravy in the morning….. looking forward to that as they are always fun to hang out with. I have to clean the table that my command center is at for breakfast….. but I guess they’re worth it~~  😉

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~!!!! ;-)
