I wasn’t going to write anything tonight, then remembered I didn’t write anything last night and got a small case of the guility’s….. so figured I better get a couple of words down here. We had a CRABBS meeting last night (local dive club) and as a departing member of the board, I was dropping off the rest of the equipment and ‘stuff’ I had and wanted to be present in case the new Board needed any help. I got there early enough to go over how to operate the speaker and went through the goodie bag I dropped off. I then got me a table off to the side and sat down and ordered myself a pizza and a beer. (which sadly, both turned out to be hugely disappointing) I was soon joined by 3 other former Board members and we all agreed it was ‘weird‘ to be sitting there and not up running the meeting. It was a good kind of weird though– I was ready to get out of it. Just to busy with all kind of other things. The new Board is off to a really good start and I’m happy to see it. I’ll probably make the next meeting or two before I start dropping out of them. I don’t want to drop out completely, because there are a bunch of good folks that belong…… but on those evenings when I’m a little more worn out than usual [like tonight] — I can sit out and not feel bad about it.
Today was a tough day…. our mostly full boat required a LOT of attention on both loads. I stayed plenty busy being a Dive Master versus a photographer. The second dive we had a pretty decent shark event….. to the point where I was putting myself between overly friendly sharks and a guest who was scared out of her wits. Then it happened again…. and I thought…. “hey— dipstick….. take pictures while you’re doing that”….. so I did….. and wound up with a couple of nice shots. That’s a good thing because I didn’t get to take hardly any non-people pictures….. dammit emmit.
Taking the day off from ‘work’ tomorrow to shoot some pictures for my island family. I will be underwater, but not with my shop. The decision has been made to split the day (was supposed to be a full day photo shoot) but now we’re gonna do the underwater pictures tomorrow and the land shots next week end. Should be a fun relaxed shoot tomorrow….. just hope nobody from my shop sees me on that other boat 😉
Good Night Y’all – – – – – – – – – – – – – Thankx for stopping in~!
