Just got back from learning to scuba in Mexico – it was awesome. I got my PADI open water certification and stayed at a dive hotel in Cozumel. Even though Cozumel is still recovering from it’s hurricane double header in 2005, the reefs and marine life were stunning. I wouldn’t know any better, but I was impressed with what I saw.
That would include green and spotted moray eels, lobsters, crabs, craploads of different fish, shark, barracuda, and enormous turtles. I got to swim down to 80 feet, swim through coral arches and tubes, drift dive and something even more special for my last dive. Night Diving! It’s scarier and weirder. Phytoplankton fluoresces around you and your bubbles in the dark.
Going into a big push on a very important project for work over the next few weeks to month so I’ll be writing less frequently. Keep in touch, peeps – and if anyone wants to go diving, let me know!
