Is It Yes Or No!
My dive buddy Allisa is newly certified like I am. But it has been six months since she had "been under" and her last dive was her check out dive. We thought we could SCUBA in the pool at the local fitness center if we signed a liability waver. They said no. We called the YMCA in Lawton where we did our pool sessions with the dive class to ask if we could do it there. They said yes and then they said no. So the last option is the lake. The cold lake I might add. The instructor that certified us is taking a group for their check out dive April 26 to a lake in Lawton. That means that Saturday the 26th I will be freezing my buns off. Oh joy! But hey diving is diving! I am ready! Hawaii will be a welcome change to a cold and dirty lake! It will be good experience for Allisa and I. At least that is what I keep telling myself! All kidding aside I am looking forward to it. As many of you know I am a creature of the water. I love diving. So I will enjoy it even though I may not have any buns left! ;)
The picture was take in Balmorhea a few weeks ago. I am the one with the bright green tank.
That is as close to a wet suit photo you are going to get. I am sure you are all relieved.
In case you were wondering my terrible dive partner is the man standing on the left with the yellow and black BC. The man sitting down towards the corner of the pool is mini teacher (he has the yellow fin next to him).
