Fresh water from the sky~~

Another short commute for me this morning as the boat was still out on this end of the island after getting woke up and making breakfast for me and my Queen. Several people cancelled this morning and as it turns out we only had two guests on the boat for our dives this morning. I know it is not good for business to take out just 2 people…. but I really like being on the boat then. TONS of room and it makes it real easy for me to remember who all I took pictures of — LOL~!! As it turns out—we had two awesome dives~!! Visibility was good on both dives…. lots of critters…. 3 big turtles, a big ole gnarly Barracuda [even though I didn’t get a picture of him]… and an EAGLE RAY~!! (got pictures, but not what I call good pictures) a Green moray eel~!! Even though I couldn’t get pictures of him either….. he was tucked way in the bottom of a big coral mound….. Just 2 real good relaxed fun dives. I say relaxed….. I think I’m safe admitting— I used up about a quarter of a tank of air trying to catch up to that Eagle Ray. I was sucking air hard by the time I finally gave up and wound up having to come up to the boat about 10-15 minutes before anyone else. That hasn’t happened since I started diving….. but the things you have to do to get ‘that shot’~~~

Got back to the house just in time for the sky to open up and start pouring rain. We even had a little bit of thunder and lightening with it. I had to almost completely close the shutters to keep the rain out…… and it got cool enough I had to put my T-shirt on…. BRRRrrrr…. awe…right ?  😉  Got to spend well over an hour on the phone with a friend I haven’t heard from in quite some time…. Roland Hall – from the Atlanta Hall’s……  LOL. Good to hear from him as always. Have texted with most of my Daughters getting caught up on the weather back there…… yuck~! I still have to call Rachael…… today is her birthday.

No diving in the morning….. but I have some class room learning to do. Have to get my EFR training recertified. (Emergency First Responder / CPR training) I had to have it to get my Rescue Diver certification. It has to be current to get my Dive Master certification, so some school work for me. Then I have a Lady’s Day Dive & Sip tomorrow afternoon to shoot. Besides the Captain – I will be the only dude allowed on the boat. The Ladies will make a dive then come on board for some Wine, snacks and socializing. Should be quite the event. Then gonna take Sunday off and try and get a look to see what next week looks like.

Happy Birthday Rachael~!

Good Night Y’all – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – 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~!!!! ;-)
