I got scuba certified over a decade ago while living in Hawaii (another place I should write about sometime) but I haven't really been diving since then. However, B and I decided that since we're going to be in the South Pacific this summer we should definitely take the opportunity to go scuba diving. B got certified a couple months ago and I had my refresher course last night! It's been a looong time since I've been scuba diving, but fortunately it was like riding a bike. Sorta. I noticed I wasn't quite as care-free as my 20 year old self (I have kids and a family!) but all in all I was pleased to see how easily I remembered and felt comfortable with it all again. I plan on taking at least one more pool dive before we leave.
The picture above was taken in Rarotonga, which is where we're going! Tell me you wouldn't pee your wetsuit if that was you. I think I would LOVE to have an encounter like that, but would be nervous as all get out. Any scuba divers out there? Any favorite dive spots, encounters or otherwise great stories?
