Splish, Splash I Was Taking a Bath


So now all three boys are scuba qualified. Bravo Jeremy.  I looked forward to major family diving adventures. We go out for two dives on Saturday with the trusty neighbors Jordan and Connie. The first dive we just swim out and out into unknown waters from the coast. Suddenly the water deepens dramatically and down we go into a space-scape of pinnacles and gullies floored with perfect white sand. Fantastic.

Full Fathoms Five

Jeremy spots a turtle. She watches us for a while and then glides off.

It is very hot and tropical as we go back to the apartment and sure enough there is a storm of hot rain. This clears the air for the second dive late in the afternoon. The water is a clear as clear. The fish are abundant.

A far cry from Loch Awe

Hunting the great white whale.

There is no one around. We dive into a deep blue underwater cave that comes up into a cavern inside the mountain. We find pirate gold. We stuff our pockets. We turn around and forty thousand headmen hit the dirt.

The sun is setting as we surface and the water is metallic.

How were we to know there was a party going on?

    Hi Jeremy! Looks like you’re having fun there. Has Neil taken you for a bowl of fish head soba down at the port yet? It’s great with a glass of beer! See you in August.
