The day started out decent enough even though it didn’t particularly end up that way. A bite to eat- truck loaded– another mad dash to the bathroom….. finally out the door. Bigger crowd today, 8 guests including one student. The good thing is I knew and dove with all of them at least a time or two, so not a lot of pressure to get everyone’s photo’s. The ones that wanted pictures seeked me out, which always makes it a lot easier. We dove one of my favorite places. It’s called Sea Mount. It’s a deep dive, so it doesn’t last very long, but tons of photo’s ops and it usually holds a couple of big sharks….. up near 8′ in length. Just arrived to the site and was settling in to get shots of the student when the Dive Master got my attention and pointed off to the distance. I knew it had to be good from the way he was gesturing, so I took off. Big mistake……! Rookie mistake~! Oh- what he was pointing at was worth the attention…… but it was deep and moving fast. Did I say it was deep ?? I meant deep~! I put in a solid 2-3 minute kick going after this gorgeous Eagle Ray….. at 133‘ deep. That 2-3 minute kick on the surface or shallow water will wear my tired old fat butt out…… at 130’…. I used up about ¼th of my air…… so by the time I got back to the pinnacle….. I had to head back to the boat. Dammit Emmit~! I didn’t get any keep-able pictures of it, but I did manage video of it…. so I have ‘proof’. Second dive wasn’t as pretty, but had lots and lots of sharks. A couple of dead lion fish kept the sharks in close and engaged. So, so much fun~! A slightly smaller boat tomorrow, but once again, I know must of the divers, so both dives should be fun and relaxed.
I was gonna go into the way my day went when I got back here to the house (to warrant todays title), but it gave me a nasty headache and it’s just about gone now, so I don’t want to rehash it right now…… Thank you for the input on the questions yesterday. I don’t have enough ‘space‘ left in todays ramblings to get into part II of the questions, so I’ll save it for another day when I need something to write about.
Good Night Y’all + + + + + + + + + + + + + + Thankx for stopping in~!
