and so it goes…….

Up and ‘at ‘em this morning, anxious to get in the water and give my ‘new’ camera set up another try.  I knew we were gonna have a fairly full boat and I would be a skosh busier than usual chasing people to get their pictures, but should still have time for some experimenting. Being the first day with this group, I think they were a little bit leery of me (a lot of divers think when I launch into my spiel about the pictures that it is going to cost them more money) and nobody seemed interested in getting their picture taken this morning. Between dives and after the last dive, I did a little more  interacting with them (on the boat) and I think they finally believe me that their pictures would not cost them anything. I do explain that there will be some stuff for sale- but anything they are recognizable in – will be a free download. I hope they check out my gallery tonight and see the pictures I put up and be a little more agreeable to getting their picture taken tomorrow. If not– no biggie…. always lots of other things to shoot. My boss understands that.

I did make a few more videos and that little set up is going to work out good. I thought about maybe upgrading to a GoPro 10 (I have a 4, that has long since earned it’s keep) for even better quality video (I have heard really good things about video quality from them), but think I might wait until I get get a little more used to shooting video. The biggest downside of my little 4, is there is no view finder on it- so I have to guesstimate what the camera is looking at, which is a challenge all in it’s own…… but I’m kind of used to doing that. I have had that camera for almost 8 years now and it still does an outstanding job~! Another big day tomorrow with the big new group and I think the shop has added another couple of divers and some snorkelers, so it ought to be a real full boat. On top of that, we are moving back to the North Shore, so I think we’ll still have some ‘sporty‘ water to deal with out there.  Should be an interesting day. One high light today— we got into a nasty current today and I ‘did good’ in it with my new fins~! I would have never made it back to the boat in my old fins…… so Yay~! 

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~!!!! ;-)
