Discover Scuba Dives (DSD’s)

On a REALLY busy day at the dive shop…… you may have 4-6 DSD’s….. that is handful… for any shop to contend with……. today, at ‘my’ shop….. we had 13 DSD’s. That is what the ‘boss’ called me about and asked if I could ‘shoot‘ it. I yanked my plans around and told her I could…….. me and my big mouth…… Lord have Mercy was today a busy day. The on land classroom stuff wasn’t bad…… but once we got in the water…..   OMG…… it was like herding chickens…….. There were 4 Divemaster/Instructors in the water to ensure the ratio of Instructor to Student was ample……. broke up into groups to do their ‘skills‘ – I had my hands much more than full getting from group to group to ensure I got everyone in the pictures. Once skills were satisfied, the group….. broken up as they were, headed out for their SCUBA dive……….. I did my level best to chase and find everybody to get their pictures underwater…… but a feller can only do so much…… I have a sinking feeling I missed one group [of 4]…… I hate it – but there is only so much water one fat guy can cover…… I wound up with some gorgeous pictures…. I hope you agree….. even more so – I hope the boss agrees………..  I cancelled myself on the morning boat…. simply because I am worn out from my day ‘off‘. The dive shop is doing another wine cruise tomorrow night – and I am ‘on’ for that….. so I’m gonna get in a little rest before it……… Also calling quits here….. tired and ready to go stretch out in our nice cool bedroom.

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~!!!! ;-)

  1. It was awesome working with you and the team at cane bay dive shop, Bill.
    The team helped my wife get over her hydrophobia to a point, where she has transformed from not stepping into a 3ft pool to wanting to do more watersport going forward 🙂
    Special thanks to you for capturing these great moments!


    1. Hello Shashi –
      Thank you so much for the kind words. I’m very happy you all had a good experience with our Dive Shop and I was delighted to be able to get some pictures for you. My deepest apologies to the people I didn’t catch up to underwater, but everyone was so spread out – it made it quite the challenge. I hope your entire group had a good time and we look forward to diving with you again on your next return to our beautiful island.
      Many Thanks,
