A GREAT day of diving — and Dolphins~!

First dive site today was a favorite that I only get to dive a couple of times a year because weather and water conditions have to be perfect. This morning they were and we got to dive Vertigo~! The ‘Good’ part of the dive starts at about 110’….. of course a decent law abiding diver would never go beyond the recreational depth of 130’…. so you have to be careful when making this dive….. but when your are ‘careful’ it is a very rewarding dive…… sadly, my camera did not react like I thought it would at those depths and pictures [savable] were few and far between. Because of the depth, you can’t stay there very long….. but is sure is something to see when you’re down there~!

Second dive was a lot less deep – and visibility dropped off as the dive wore on, but there were some [unfriendly] sharks and just lots of beautiful corals to look at. A really good group of divers made the dive just that much more enjoyable. Stopped by the dive shop on the way home and picked up a new dive light. No two ways about it – the last one “died” at my hands, using it to strike the tray that camera sits on (trying to replicate the sound of a spear hitting a rock) to draw the sharks in….. a mildly expensive lesson to learn – but I’m sure even Jacques Cousteau had to start somewhere…….   😉

Back here after a very cold Budweiser or two 😉 My bride has fed me…. I actually took a bit of a nap….. oh okay – maybe more than a couple of Budweiser’s. A little bit of Vodka in there as well……. feeling fit as a fiddle and ready for a shower now…. some pix from today. I put a fun video up today (on FB) from some surprise visitors (Dolphins) way to big to put on here….. check it out~! Taking the day off again tomorrow and then probably diving everyday the rest of the week. Little Sis and company comes in toward the end of next week and I need to build up enough “time off” to be able to hang out with them…… can’t wait for that~!! SO excited~!!!!!

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~!!!! ;-)
